Hello. My wife (at the time) and I put this route up during the summer of 2002. It is called Stargazer. We rated it 5.6+. I don't generally go around bolting 5.6, but my wife was pregnant at the time and still wanted to climb some easy routes. Wasn't much of that around here at the time. Thus, we created Stargazer. Of course, I drilled it on lead from the ground up. As I recall, I used some hardware store variety un-welded shuts for the anchors atop the 1st and 2nd pitches. I've been meaning to replace those, but have not been back out there in several years. I hope to make it back up there this Summer to do a few things in the Winds and maybe Lankin Dome again. I'll replace those shuts with something better if they are still there. Other than the belay hardware, I used Rawl/Powers 5 pc bolts with either Metoleus or Fixe hangers everywhere else.
We used to spend a fair amount of time out there in Miller Pocket and at the Miller Cabin. Very peaceful area with lots of "adventure" climbing.
Best to keep a low-profile out here, wave to the ranchers, and leave all gates as found.
