Description

Pull a hard and fun boulder problem past a bolt and a fixed pin to a jug. Climb better holds past 2 bolts to a stance. Finish out moderate roof to the anchor. This route didn't make Selected Climbs for whatever reason. It definitely gets more traffic than most routes in the Hanging Garden except maybe the Pooh routes. A great Moores 5.12 on solid rock with good gear.

Location

In the Hanging Garden. Start left of Porter's Pooh where you can clip a bolt almost from the ground.

Protection

Mostly a clip-up, but bring a few cams. Tim F. recently upgraded the last 2 bolts and anchor on this route, so whip away.

Stars and Bars was put-up by Todd Skinner and Russell Erikson. I re-equipped parts of it with Todd's permission which I got in the summer of 1989 in Atlantic City, WY. Stars and Bars was the name of the original confederate flag...it has stars AND bars...the Rebel Flag. Mar 17, 2009

Nathan,

You have the route right. we replaced the first manky bolt and the pin with just one bolt. Either way the route required a stick clip so we figured it made more sense just to move the bolt up a bit and get rid of the junk pin. The route going out right is Aries. Its seth's route. Jun 21, 2015
