The Blue Alien
Photo by Al Hospers
Directions:  Walk way left on the tree covered ledge where the Inferno Crack starts. You will have to go down the hill just a little. Blue Alien is the leftmost bolted climb.
Description: Start at a small overhang with a cut stump under it twenty feet to the left of Heart of Darkness. This is just right of the broken cracks and blocks of Generation Gap 5.5.
    Pitch 1: Climb past the overlap at fixed pins and a bolt. Climb up with natural gear to a bolt, make a high step up and then right to a small stance (crux 5.10a). Follow a thin finger crack to the two-bolt ring anchor on the right on the slab above.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: rappel from fixed anchors
History:  September 1999 - Brad White, Ian Cruikshank
