Go girl!


Do you recall that part in The Empire Strikes Back when that pud, Luke, was trying to use the force to get his X-Wing out of the swamp to no avail? That is how this climb feels.

Get ready to spend a looooong time struggling your way up this one, young Jedi. A hair raising start leads to a blank, black section of climb that has a hidden pocket far, far to the right, somewhere in a galaxy which is a long, long reach away.

If you can stick that pocket, the rest of the climb is not necessarily a cakewalk, but the climbing is doable if you don't mind holding on for dear life on small ledges with small holds.

An excellent 5.11 project for a climber who refuses to give up. Do this climb! It's actually good fun! Just remember to wear your brown pants.


Moving from right to left, this would be the second climb on the far right side of the Dark Side Wall before you get to The Space Balls Wall. It is just to the right of Breast Pump which makes ya wonder what was on the developer's mind when this route went in.


10 quickdraws and open shut anchors.
