BETA PHOTO: The view of Skywalker looking south. Quite a beaut...


This is the first route on your right after you get to The Waterfall Wall. It's right on the ridge creating a border between Tatooine and The Waterfall Wall. Begin up on a pedestal with a ring bolt for your belayer to clip into. The route is like a mountaineering ridge but with some nice rock and very sweet views. It's not very hard, but the exposure is unbelievable. Huge drop offs to your right and left and the route tops out on top of the wall. A climb that will make you realize how cool 5.2 can be sometimes.

All bolts about 15 including chains.

Quick and fun... Galaxy Area has several of these routes that you would think are too easy to be worth it...but end up being good.
