Description

Starts to the right of Catch a Falling Star.

Easily up to a shallow corner, this, then, leads to the horizontal crack on the above-mentioned climb. Cam. The next move, over the bulge, can prove to be quite baffling. No clues given here. Enjoyable face climbing follows past 2 bolts.

Walk off to the left (facing the rock).

Protection

1 small/medium cam, 2 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

5.9 for sure above the horizontal and below the first bolt. There's a hueco way up left that is quite a reach, but solid. I'm sure there are other ways. Jan 15, 2012

5.9ish is a good call for this. Jan 28, 2006

I'm 6'3" and I had trouble pulling up beyond the horizontal crack. I finally found that going up the left most jugs was the best and most solid way up to the bolt. Feb 6, 2005

Even with the aforementioned gear placement, I think you would likely deck if you blew the clip at the first bolt. Nov 16, 2004

have to agree with Woody on this one. I felt 5.8+/5.9 fits. then again maybe it is a height thing and I am on the shorter side? Not sure! But after doing "Catch a falling star", drop back down and give this one a shot. It's worth it Apr 13, 2004
I've led this route numerous times. The crux has been done three different ways that I know off, and all are something of a puzzle. If you're short, you can forget 5.8. Also, I believe 5.9 would be a more accurate, general rating. Whatever, it's a fine little route. Jan 20, 2004
