Scramble up some easy ledges to a flake and clip the bolt (on Longlife?) if you want. Head right up a finger crack that morphs into a chimney. A little dirty but fun!


Right of Just Say No to Frank Sinatra, left of Zoom.


Gear to 2".

Long neglected, this climb has recently become a much enjoyed climb for the grade and common warm-up for the next level of difficulty of climbs in The Country. It makes for good practice for the chimney on Saggitarius. Gear to 1.5"

Mourning Star is also a quick approach to the first anchor of Zoom, making it easy access to Hairway to Stephen and Leave My Face Alone, or a Zoom TR.
