Description 

This excellent face climb shares an anchor with Warping The Gale, and just like Warping, it is a very continuous climb. Every move is between 5.10c and 5.11b, and there must be close to twenty of them. Also like Warping, the climbing is on small edges, vertical, and bullet proof. Bring the edging shoes. Although a straight up vectorial climb, route finding on The Lady is often not simple. Three stars for continuity, the quality of the rock, and the view from the top.


Protection 

QDs only. About one bolt and four moves longer than Warping The Gale.

The tenuous block adjacent to the anchor was tossed on 9/11/10, and the anchor was upgraded with a stainless steel hardware as well. This route reminded me of why we went to the Starcastle in the first place, besides the views.

excellent route with sustained climbing in the 9 to 10 range on a nicely featured slab. the protection is very good, although there is one clip up high that is a little tenuous. edging shoes are helpful on this one.
