I AM WINNING! A good veiew of Millinneum Falcon on...


The new installment of the Galaxy area. Can be seen from almost anywhere along the main canyon trail as the big obvious orange arch above Bug Barn wall and to the right of the Waterfall Wall. So far the routes here are pretty darn classic.
One of the best walls in the area along with Milky Way (perhaps the whole canyon).

Getting There 

Simply continue on the trail past the Endor Wall and stop at the wall with the obvious big orange arch. Can't miss it if you are paying any amount of attention.

The Force 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Tatooine
This route is so fun that once you send it, the force will be with you, always.It climbs a stunning face just left of the big left-facing corner and is in between the orange and blue streaks. Pull up to a ledge and clip a bolt, from there it's typically a couple of hard moves to a medium jug. It does this sort of movement throughout the route and will be an ultimate test in your sequence finding abilities.The rock is perfect just like its neighbors and the climb ends below a huge roof. Stay tune...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Great climbing, well worth the hike. All four routes in the center of the Tatooine wall are fun on good rock. The 11b and 11a were thin and sequential with good holds mixed in for places to suss out the climbing ahead. Fun, fun.

Not really. I guess you could take up a bag and clear out a spot for a bivi. Where is the question...

There's a bolted line left of Triumphal Arch. Any idea what it is?

There are two lines to the left. Both are 5.12+. There are 3 lines above all 5.13 or harder.
