Description:

Right between Klingon and Spock this route takes the direct line straight to the roof of Klingon and continues to Klingon's chains. Hopes were to continue the line directly above with the bulbous and very overhanging moves to the right of Klingon's chains. This direct variation of Klingon has very strenuous and steep moves through the first two bolts.

Descent Options:

Chains of Klingon.

4 out of 5 stars Crimper Headache

Sweet little boulder problem, makes more sense now that the flake is gone. As if someone saw the big loose flake and knew it would fall.

3 out of 5 stars Few tough moves

I sent (in '00 I think) the bottom section (the direct line to the original crux roof of Klingon) and finished out at the chains of Klingon. I had hoped to find some way to work the line up higher right through the very steep and fun looking section. I was denied outright.

I'll have to see about working that section again now that I'm back climbing regularly.
