The most striking line at Middle Earth, War of the Worlds ascends a clean, rounded, vertical arete. When the angle lessens one can veer left for the complete two pitch experience or pull a small overhang for the lesser, but still 5.12-, variation.
The climbing is a stark contrast from the overhung routes to the left. This one is all footwork. A true gem for the technicians.
(Note: I have only climbed the mini-pitch so I can't speak to the rest of the route)
War of the Worlds is the first bolted line encountered where the crag descends. It starts to the right of a grungy chimney and to the left of The Planet Eater.
Bolts and chains. The mini-pitch is 12 bolts to chains.
