First route on the Starlight Buttress is The Point...
Better enjoy this, Point of Entry is the only easy way up the Wild Overhang Wall. A short way up Wasp Canyon the wall on the left side kicks out a huge overhang, and this is the Wild Overhang Wall. On the left side of the overhang, low in the canyon, and off fine flat boulder is a bolt protected and right traversing jug haul. This straightens out and heads for the roof above on bolts. At the roof, pro switches to Friends and Camalots, or even some bigger stoppers. Haul over the roof on more jugs, with a big run out to the anchor. Excellent climbing on a steep wall that only gets steeper as you tackle the routes on the right.
QD and Camalots in the #1, #2, #3 range. A 60m rope gets you down from a double bolt anchor over the lip.
Upper section of the Point. Climber K. Stricker.

This is a good route, but really only one move of 5.10 at the first roof. Two bolts and small gear on the final headwall.

Fun, short route then lots of traversing. Good way to get atop and set a TR for the 12s.
