Ian becoming the rocket man.

Clipping the first ...


This route is just to the right of Bucket Slave. A tricky start leads to a big ledge. Above, climb the cool giant hueco type feature that looks like a rocket to a final difficult sequence and anchors.


5 bolts and anchors.

Crux comes at the start and end. May be nice to stick clip the first bolt. The 3rd bolt is high off the ledge and would result in a ground fall if you bounce off the ledge. Still a fun climb if you can keep your head. Some good pockets in the Rocket.

Yikes, be careful clipping the third. The bottom is excellent, the ledge is a bummer, and the top is just ok.

What Dusty said. This is ANTI-CLASSIC!
