Description

Essentially an extension to Warp Factor that tops out Star Walls. Bring some guns to fire through the ticky tack "bearhug" flake.

The crux dyno goes either handed from what I've seen. I have not sent this route...

Location

After sending Warp Factor, brace yourself for some hard pumpy bouldering...the roof has amazing buckets but there is still a typical Donner 5.11 technical move guarding the anchor.

Protection

Mostly fixed, might need a draw or two for the start.

Strangely enough, I managed to trundle a softball sized rock from this piece; I believe it was above the crux in the cavey section where it's possible to heel/toe hook in a sort of recess while traversing left. Not sure where the rock originated from, but it didn't seem to change the climbing any. Great route! Tough for the grade! Sep 2, 2009
