Cedric's follows the discontinuous right-slanting cracks just left of Light Sabre. Where the name came from is a mystery to me. Expect a mix of side-pulls and face holds with your jams for the bottom section. At the top, the crack fades into the face so you must smear to the summit. It's more technical and devious than Light Sabre, and a bit more work to set the gear, but overall it's a worthy pitch. If it seems a little out of your league, run up Thumbs Down Left or Light Sabre and string a top-rope - you'll be glad you did.
Standard trad rack, with extras in the .75 to 1.5 range.

David just past the crux on another great climb on...
Time to leave the stem and crank.
Pretty continuous dude!

this route is really good all the pro you place is absolutely bomber, like alan said it is easily top roped off of the anchors on light saber.

High quality and fairly continuous, I was pumped for the rest of the day.

I thought this route was more engaging and more enjoyable than Lightsaber. Definitely quite a bit longer as well which adds value!

Slightly better than good... unless it is during hot weather... this thing cooks! Add a few letter grades if the temp is warm.

Engaging climbing, well worth doing. The cruxes are more insecure than hard. Afterwards, it's easier climbing until the crack runs out and it's either a friction slab straight up, or a move left into a left trending, almost horizontal crack system (everyone seems to go left). Mostly fingers, takes good pro, although it may be awkward or strenous to place. You could always TR off the fixed anchor near the top of Light Sabre.

Absolute pumpfest! Great gear, but strenuous to place. My arms were jacked for hours afterwards.
