The moves on this route epitomize Rushmore climbing. Pinching crystals... side clings... smearing with EXCELLENT friction... it's ALL there.

Take one of several options to clip the first bolt... then start crankin'! The line of crystals appears quite obvious from the ground, however putting the moves together may take more thought than you expect. Specifically from bolts 3 through 5. (HINT: The shortest distance between two points MAY be a straight line... but it's not necessarily the easiest...)


This route lies halfway between "Skywalker" and "Stardancer" on a detached pinnacle.


8 bolts placed JUST where you need them.
