This route will steal your thunder if your jock strap is loose. From the first bolt and first move of Stars and Bars reach out left into an undercling, moving through cool moves and good gear. Pass thru a quartzite band with little to no gear, heading for an obvious left leaning 2.5" slot that siloettes against the sky. A fall thru this cruxy band could be quite serious so do not take lightly. Once past the slot, climb the much easier headwall to Stars and Bars anchors. From the anchors this route is easily top roped and would be advisable before a lead.


Left of Stars and Bars.


One bolt, rack of small to midsize cams (one big enough for the slot) and stoppers. Fixed anchors.
