Seasonal Raptor Closure 2015 - Monument Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Technical and varied climbing on a column past eight bolts leads to the upper crack section of Morning Star. The crux comes between bolt #3 and #4. Reaching bolt #8 is somewhat contrived because you have to consciously avoid using the Morning Star crack on your right. The climbing quality, however, is excellent.

Location 

The bolted column adjacent to Morning Star on the Star Wall.

Protection 

QD's and optional gear to 0.5" for the upper crack portion of Morning Star. Beefy chain anchors are at the top.

Last 2 bolts are pretty contrived...line of weakness is to finish up Morning Star. Really excellent climbing otherwise.

This was rated 12a by the FA and I think that is pretty spot on.
The upper line does get close to Morning Star but that didn't detract for me. There is a nice sequence of moves that stay in a natural line and distinct from Morning Star and go at a grade very consistent with the rest of the climb.

Fun, long, great rock. I'd give it 3.5 stars.
