Docked two stars for a contrived crux.

Most of this pitch is excellent, steep, clean crimping. The slithery crux, at the 2nd-to-last bolt, would be an excellent change of pace if it were not easily avoided at a much easier grade by hand-traversing left on jugs for about 4'.


On the recessed panel between the big roof of Enterprise and the larger face containing Photon Torpedo.


10 bolts.

I didn't find the crux contrived at all. Great route

Awesome pitch on perfect rock. Didn't find it to be contrived at all, but a bit soft maybe. Perhaps I took the alternate easy finish? I moved left with some cool moves up awesome steep jugs after the crimpy face and finished on a slab. Seemed like I was following the bolts though.
