To the right and around the bend from Gobs of Knobs awaits the true test of your Jedi skills. LightSaber is the premier gear route in this little corner of the galaxy. And while it is more fun than blowing up the Death Star without using a guidance system, it is not a route for those who think their fear might make them succum to the Dark Side.

Starts with an unprotectable boulder problem which puts you up against a crack that is hard to navigate and even harder to read as far as gear placement goes. The crack leads to a tricky pod/roof pull that brings you just within reach of two bolts which offer very little New Hope for those who are not comfortable with Needle's style runouts.

A few Jedi Masters might insist that this route is everything the Needle's offers in a miniature package and Padwans need not apply. However, if you're getting bold and want a taste of what true Southern Hills climbing has to offer do this route or top rope it after Yoda has shown you the way.


To the right of Gobs of Knobs is a chimney to the right of the chimney is this fairly obvious crack line.


Two Quickdraws and an assortment of small to medium sized cams and nuts.
