Description

This route is really nice and makes for a nice short day in the park. After the first 80 feet, the rock is really good and the climbing fun.

1) Climb nebulous terrain for about 140 feet to below and right of a 25 or 30 foot wide, gray, rectangular plaque. 5.7R.

2) Climb up a slightly overhung handcrack 10 feet right of the gray plaque. When it ends on a ledge, follow an easier flake with a wide crack up and left to near its end. 5.10-.

3) From the end of the flake, climb straight up following intermittent cracks to a ledge after 50 feet. Traverse right along the ledge, continuing where it ends to the first shallow dihedral. Follow the dihedral up to a sloping ledge on the left below an overhanging fist crack. 5.8R.

4) Climb the overhang and continue up the prominent, wide, left-facing corner crack. This pitch ends near the top of Blackstar. 5.9 (without a fair amount of wide gear this is a little runout).

Descend by traversing the large treed ledge until one can descend to the trail.

Location

The route starts about 50 feet left of the gully of Womb With a View. Look for an obvious, left-leaning flake system that starts about 200 feet up and a prominent, left-facing corner system right of the finish of Blackstar.

Protection

Standard RMNP rack up to #4 or #5 Camalot.
