Starts with a nice thin hand/hand crack which quickly ends and face climbing past a bolt gains a horizontal crack. Higher, three bolts protect traversing moves up and right along a patina rail which ends and a forces a few frictiony moves that lead to the anchors at the summit. Three stars out of five.


Just right of Light Sabre is this great crack/face line.


4 bolts, gear to 2.5", 2 bolt anchor (all bolts are 3/8").

Climbing above each of the four bolts consists of difficult moves. Bolt #1 protects 5.11 face climbing. Bolts #2 and #3 protect powerful moves over a small roof onto a rail (5.12). Stepping above the rail requires a committing and balancy 5.11 face move to reach the last bolt. Bolt #4 protects more 5.11 face climbing. Whew!! 3 out of 5 stars.

Interesting. I climbed this last year but couldn't find it in any book. The moves out the roof are difficult and getting onto the rail is interesting movement. 3 stars for this relatively obscure but fun climb!
