DescriptionOff the beaten path but an interesting climb with cool moves. I wouldn't go out of my way for it but if you are in the area and looking for a mid grade 5.10 take a spin on it.
Stick clip the first bolt and step across the gap to get established on the climb. Make very awkward progress up the steep ramp heading up and right. The climbing involves balance and utilizing slopers and awkward holds to the second bolt. It gets a little easier from here. Continue up the ramp to good holds and clip the chains on the left.
LocationThis climb is not attached to Lower Vader but that's the closest cliff so it gets lumped in with it.
Hiking up from Darth Vader look off the trail to the left for a large boulder. Follow the rough trail and look for the obvious line.
