Description:

Interesting, if somewhat wrathful little climb. Belay at the left end of the ledge on Star Trek wall. Head up the Crack of the Klingons, then traverse left using horizontal crack to the arete. Then up right side of the arete, to a angling flake and traverse to left side of arete, then on to bolted anchors on top.

Descent Options:

Rap or lower

4 out of 5 stars Packs alot into a short distance

Tricky traverses, short dynos, hand switches, balancy foot shuffles, etc. Fun moves, but challenging to read them for the grade. Pro is a bit tricky too.
