Description 

According to Rossiter, this pitch is presumed to be the way that K. Donald & his partner reached the second pitch of Star Wars to do the F.A. of that pitch.

From the ledge at the base of Starwars and Home free, about halfway between the two routes, a large pine tree sits near the base of an arete. A few cracks ascent the arete for 60' near to this tree at the base.

Climb up and left on two cracks (mostly easy) to the ledge contiguous with the first pitch of Star Wars.

This pitch is easy with plenty of good gear and is a reasonable practice lead for a newbie.


Protection 

Standard rack with lots of good gear and stances to place from.
