3 out of 5 stars fun potential for multipitch

climbing this route and belay from the bolt anchors 40 feet up gives you the opportunity to do a multipitch (though a short one) doing a second pitch off The Wrath of Kahn 5.8, Crack of Kingons 5.6, Beam Me Up Scotty 5.6, Impulse Power 5.4, or Tractor Beam 5.8R. I went up Beam Me Up, Scotty 5.6. YOu did have to traverse along a large ledge that you could protect if you wanted but I was confortable enough to risk the swing potential of a fall.

3 out of 5 stars Awkward

This line was really awkward to protect, but I only had one #4. I protected on the face with some small gear (that got stuck and took me forever to get out)...then my belayer got a kidney stone so I had to rap down instead of climbing the other routes and leave...lame...

3 out of 5 stars Good warmup

Good warmup and "1st pitch" that gives you access to the upper ledge and the 3 associated routes on Star Trek wall. This is a great way to practice multi-pitch skills without the commitment.
