The Alien*** E4 6b

Rockfax Description
The second best route on Central Buttress has a superb crux section, which is hard, but short-lived. Climb up to a scoop, then move right and climb up to the bulge. Pull left to a thin crack, then back up right to an undercut (pegs). Make a hard move out left to gain a good hold at the base of a groove. Pull up and climb the groove, then move left to the lower-off. © ROCKFAX
