Description:

This route climbs the overhanging arete above the ledge to the right of "Moonshine". Traverse right along the ledge to the high first bolt (that can easily be clipped standing on the ledge) or climb "Revenge of the Sith" as a direct start. Pull the roof and then jug haul up the overhanging arete to a vertical, but slightly more technical finish. The rock quality is much better than it looks. Fun moves.

3 out of 5 stars Nice.

Enjoyable climb, but the gem is the direct start. Get on that crack!

3 out of 5 stars .

With the first bolt on the roof already clipped, I chose to climb the direct 5.11ish start instead of scrambing on the boulder. The actual route is enjoyable, but not very memorable.

4 out of 5 stars odd bolts (again)

this crag has some odd bolting. I skipped one (that i spotted from below) because it was in such an awkward spot. A pumpier, more overhanging version of Moonshine.
