Description:

A long (45m) crack that splits right through the centre of the Starr Wall: bring lots of nuts to conserve your cams on this modern classic. Originally given 5.8 by the FA party, the route was upgraded to 5.9 by the guidebook author but don't kid yourself, it really is 5.8. The crux is two moves at the bottom, the rest of the climb is 5.7 with lots of rests.

5 out of 5 stars Holy toledo this route is stellar!

What a glorious line. Crux at the start the cruiser to the top. The most enjoyable 5.8 I have ever had the priviledge of climbing. Wowzaz! Don't forget to look behind you and take in the view!

5 out of 5 stars Gorgeous climb

One of my favorite pitches in Squamish. Starts off a 5.9, but opens up to beautiful hand and finger cracks the rest of the way.
