This the first route to the left of Pygmy Aliens. It follows a number of drilled pitons up and left to the bolt anchor on Jimmy the Greek. The second pitch angles left onto the face and then angles back to the anchors in the pit for Pygmy. Combining pitches would lead to hideous rope drag.


draws, optional light rack and two ropes for the rap

Using double rope technique, rope drag on this route (or Trapeze) is no problem. Doing one long, wandering lead is just fun.
