Falling off near the top of this AMAZING pitch.

Description 

Under the Milky Way takes the blunt arete that marks the left end of the Long Wall. Perform a bouldery move to get started (nice to have a good spotter or stick clip), then continue up sustained and technical moves to a crux high on the route. Bolted anchor.

Protection 

7 bolts, bolted anchor.

Amazing line. Don't forget to soak in the views from the top... assuming you can get past the opening boulder problem. After that, the route is delicate and techy, but it's all there.
