DescriptionYet another of the classic face routes on the Astro Domes, this one is memorable for a stiff runout to the first bolt as well as the steep, well-protected face climbing higher.
P1) Climb about 20' of insecure 5.10 friction above the talus to a bolt, run it out again to a second bolt (this feels much easier) and continue to a ledge above which the wall steepens to vertical. Four more bolts along a bolt ladder (some clips are awkward) take you to a bolted belay.
P2) Leave the belay and climb featured vertical face with interesting moves past four bolts to the top and another bolted anchor.
Descend by walking off around the back or rapping down any of several routes (Breakfast Of Champions or Shooting Star).
