As Dark Star Gully's west side turns the corner at the stream and faces south, there is a 2 bolt route rising out of the stream. The climb starts as a quartzite crack climb and ends up an edgers dream. Good pro and good moves make for a worthy climb. Near the top, it seems to be easier on the right side. An underclimbed route that is very clean, and with a very short approach.


2 draws for the route, and medium to small gear for the lower half. Also the anchor system is slings around a flake, so expect to leave 1 behind as it sits in the sun all summer.
