Given two stars in the Watts guide, this route is a bit of neglected classic. Mellow jamming up a shallow left facing corner leads to an engaging sequence turning a roof. Above that long lock-offs on positive locks take you to the chains.
3-4 lines right of Quasar. Look for two roofs immediately left of Pet Cemetery. Rising Star climbs the left most corner under the roofs.
Gear to #2 C4.

I had a terrible time on this route because there are two different pinch points that can eat the rope, and I was somehow unlucky enough to get the rope sucked into both of them. Completely debilitating rope drag.
The first pinch point is at the lip of the roof. I would recommend placing a nut there just to block the crack and prevent the rope from getting sucked in there, although I still think you could easily end up with bad rope drag there even with the nut. The second pinch point was a bit higher and I still don't really know how that one happened. This route would be fun and worth doing if you can avoid the rope drag...
