Easy fun route in the steepness.

Jugs to two bolt crux to more jugs.
Nice bouldery sequence all though short.
mid-12 for sure.

This route ends with Starlight, you just follow the jugs left after the crux.

I disagree about the crux, my partner cruised it with a high right heelhook. As I can't get the heelhook (too unbalanced at 6'2") I have to make the reach from a small left undercling which is a much more powerful move.

I linked this route with G-Route today. I figure it should be called G-Storm....
