Description 

This climbs a slight corner system with a gorgeous black water streak down its left wall. The rock is of exceptional quality with a little liebacking, high-stepping, big jugs, and a stellar traverse on flat edges.
The lieback section near the start would likely be the crux for most people.
When you get to the penultimate bolt, go left and mantle up on the flat ledge and clip the anchors.
The pitch above through the golden/orange water steak is This Is A Lightsaber!

Location 

Locate the huge roof with the right arcing arch. About 75 feet to the right is a long golden water streak up high turning to a black water streak in a corner down low. The black streak is the climb.

Protection 

7 bolts plus anchors.

CONDITION REPORT 
Wow, this thing was still really dirty. Bring stuff to help clean. We knocked off a lot but I'm sure it will still be dirty for the next party. I guess it was just added to MP a couple weeks ago so we may have been some of the first people on it.

I was really having fun on this until the rock quality at the top turned some. It goes from really good and solid to thought provoking and loose. I almost fell when I committed to a jug that had lots of chalk on it; but pulled off in my hand.
I also tossed off a huge block right above the last bolt. There is still another very scary loose/hollow block right at the top that MUST get pried off before it totally kills someone!
