Description 

Essentially a link up of Star Walls Crack to Steep Climb...maybe a bit harder due to the stopper crux of the Crack coming just before the bouldering on Steep Climb.

Also no fluff (rest) like on the horizontal on Warp Factor.


Location 

Start up the obvious crack but don't lower at the rail...just keep pumping...


Protection 

Rack for Star Walls, Steep Climb is likely fixed...

This looks like a sick gear only lead

I remember thinking the same thing. The gear seems to be thereóbut the rests don't! I really, really hope someone does it.

I recall reading an article in Rock and Ice years ago that said some climber from the Bay lead it on gear. Pretty impressive.

That was the Belgian Nico Favresse. I think the video of that is in Masters of Stone 6.

That Masters of Stone clip is insane! Truly an OG greenpoint ascent.
