L to R R to L Alpha
This dismissive route follows the thin seam between Few Species and Business as Usual, and presents two distinct cruxes, either of which can eject the applicant. This pitch would be an excellent choice to reach the crux 2nd pitch of Hostile Takeover, if continuously difficult climbing is desired. Scramble up to the small ledges below the seam bearing three bolts. Hard moves past the bolts reach the easier crack above which is protected by excellent wired nuts. When just below the big roof, look for two bolts leading out and over the roof to the right. Undercling the roof, then turn it below the huge chickenhead. Continue up to the bolt above (protects the follower), then traverse right to the belay anchors. (Squeezing the Lemmon quality scale: 2 out of 3 stars.)
6 bolts, pro to 1", anchors.
Start 10 feet right of Few Species (see Squeezing the Lemmon) below the vertical, thin seam.
