Following on the crux of Quest for Glory (5.10D)
Crux pulling through a bulge on thin finger tips with thin feet. Easy to toprope after climbing Space Truckin'.
Starts left of Space Truckin' and finishes same as Space Truckin'.
Cams: 2 each .4-1.25", 1 each 1.5-3"

Before and after the bulge felt like the crux to our party. Pulling into the stance before the roof is surprisingly difficult and I used several small C3s to get my first pieces.
The rest of the route pros up great with small to mid-size pieces up to #1 or #2 Camalots. The onsight crux was hanging onto slightly rattly finger and thin hand jams after the roof.
Current to this description, a slung block rap anchor is located at the meeting point of the Quest for Glory and Space Truckin' cracks. If you ignore this invitation you can continue on with 3.5" - 4" pro into a 5.8 extension to the two climbs ending at a bolted rap anchor. Be cautious if you only have a 60m rope and view the Space Truckin' route comments to get the full dish on rapping/TRing these routes.
