This formation is around the right (south east) side of Zenyatta Entrada. It climbs the prairie dog/alien looking towers separated from the tower of babel by a gash. Start further right & climb a sandy crack into a U, then into a cavern, up on top of a fin, c2 or a1 chossy seam to a clean (for arches) section that ribs in a ridge. Go around to the north of the formation, then go up a nice 9+ crack to the alien heads. Full bridge stem up between the heads, then offwidth to the top of the lower two heads. Clip Jimmie's psychological protection, and without falling, 11 slab move to the upper head.
