Another Vaino Kodas concoction, although I believe Mike Beck came up with the name. It is not so much a climbing route as a spelunking adventure that emerges on the summit of the large boulder containing Between A Rock And A Hard Place. From near the base of Light Sabre, crawl into a hole in the backside of the boulder. Go left 25', then head up a crack in a corner to pop out on top the boulder. This is a nice vantage point for heckling your buddies on Light Sabre or Apollo. Reverse the route to descend.


To my knowledge, all ascents to date have been free-solo (up and down).

I soloed this basically to get a better look at LS. It is more interesting than your average 5.2 solo though. Jul 14, 2010

Pretty amusing distraction, probably best as a solo, though we strung a TR for some friends Dec 7, 2016
