Description 

Under the Milky Way takes the blunt arete that marks the left end of the Long Wall. Perform a bouldery move to get started (nice to have a good spotter or stick clip), then continue up sustained and technical moves to a crux high on the route. Bolted anchor.

10 draws or so.

Bouldery start, technical (and thin) face and arete climbing, and a slightly pumpy finish that will catch you off guard if this is your limit. Great climbing.

Very Awesome. Boulder problem, thin stuff, exposure, radness.

A stick clip would have been a good idea. I survived the route, I barely survived my wife.
