DescriptionFind this meandering line on The Blade's east face and northern arête. From the summits of Long Wall & Little Blade, your eye may be drawn to a faint resemblance to a Star Wars character on the E face of this squat fin of rock. It certainly may have been done previously. Rock quality is better than Little Blade. The angle of the rock is lower than you might suspect from a distance. It may be worth a romp for the adventuresome.
Certainly there may be multiple starts to gain the N arête. The path of least resistance is between live & dead trees near the arête. Face climb up, place a cam in the horizontal and fire up to the arête. Continue up easy terrain, top out on the summit block, down climb to the S end of The Blade, belay.
