Ewoks, Pigs, And Bears

This is a nice face route at the 5.8 grade and is quite exposed. Pull up small rhyolite cubes on a dead vertical face, The crux of the route is through the middle section to easier climbing above. Watch out for loos rock as it never sees traffic. Be careful to get the first bolt clipped.
This is the furthest route right to the south on the crag. It is on the shelf above where Stoormtrooper comes in, in good winters. Ewoks is south eastern facing and is not clearly visible from the trail.
4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Some small to medium stoppers and cams for the belay. The anchor bolts need rap gear installed, or belay from here if you are continuing up the second 5.7 pitch that has a different name. Otherwise rappel the route

This route is probably best approached from the arch trail and located from the top and rap in. It is on the far east side of The Back Rocks. The 2nd pitch is low quality, but the bottom pitch is still very solid and a classic for the area.
