This climb is a variation of the upper pitches of the route 'Ruper'.
It starts about 30 feet before entering the leftward traverse under the roof with the old pins. Climb out left onto a steep, lichen-covered wall, using cool hueco features and pebbles, for about 40-45 feet. There is an incipient crack system along the way that will take a few camming devices. Continue climbing up and left to join the upper dihedral of 'Alice',and onward to the top, passing a few old pitons.
This is a better finish to Ruper'. (I.M.O.).
Looking back at the belay on the 'Reaper' traverse...
Chris Taylor, finishing out the 'Reaper'!! Woo-Ho...
