CC starting 3rd pitch of Labia with B Burgess mayb...

Description 

This route shares the first pitch with Aerospace Cadet. If I recall correctly it was done in 81/82 . It starts about 50 feet left of Out to Lunch.

Climb up a light-colored streak of rock. Mantel up and right over a bulge to a gear belay. Rating was around 9+.

Second pitch traverses up and left across orange rock to a bolt, backed up with natural gear for a bely below a multi-tiered overhanging water groove. Which is left of the Aerospace water groove. Rating was about 10-.

Third pitch goes straight up the overhanging tiered water groove which is juggy initially. However getting over the lip into the water groove above is cruxy. It then climbs about 50 feet on up the water groove to a natural belay. Last pitch finishes up easy ground to the top.
