Don Jeff leading Spaceballs - 7/08


Great big knobs and steep at the start with good protection. Pretty fun.


Spot three bolts close together, near the ground, surrounded by huge knobs, close to a prow on the north end of the west face. Rappel from bolt anchors 110' A SINGLE 60 METER ROPE WILL NOT GET YOU DOWN TO THE GROUND!


7 bolts and some gear to 1". Bolt anchor at the top.

This is the 5.5 version of P4 on 'Crying Time Again' - knobs galore! Don't let the easy grade/climbing deceive you: the first bolt is a bit off the deck and the lower angle climbing between the 3rd and 4th bolts is a bit runout. There's a great horizontal slot between the 6th and 7th bolt that takes a perfect yellow/green alien or similar sized gear. Single rope rap with 70m rope or double rope rap!
