Description 

Pull a hard and fun boulder problem past a bolt and a fixed pin to a jug. Climb better holds past 2 bolts to a stance. Finish out moderate roof to the anchor. This route didn't make Selected Climbs for whatever reason. It definitely gets more traffic than most routes in the Hanging Garden except maybe the Pooh routes. A great Moores 5.12 on solid rock with good gear.


Location 

In the Hanging Garden. Start left of Porter's Pooh where you can clip a bolt almost from the ground.


Protection 

Mostly a clip-up, but bring a few cams. Tim F. recently upgraded the last 2 bolts and anchor on this route, so whip away.

Stars and Bars was put-up by Todd Skinner and Russell Erikson. I re-equipped parts of it with Todd's permission which I got in the summer of 1989 in Atlantic City, WY. Stars and Bars was the name of the original confederate flag...it has stars AND bars...the Rebel Flag.

1st bolt replaced June 2013. The rest of the bolts are bomber. Enjoy
