Description

Same start as Lighting the Torch. Traverse right under a shallow roof using the prominent horizontal crack for protection. Climb to the prow with airy exposure and surmount the lip, establishing on the Torch just left of “Torched.” Descend from the anchors on top of “Lighting.” The airy feel and the traverse made me think of the terrible space-based James Bond movie, "Moonraker".

Location

See route map, same start as "Lighting."

Protection

Small to medium cams up to 3 inches.

Wow, I forgot how fun and incredibly exposed this route is. Nothing like being 100+ feet above the deck with only gear. Ah, what delight to be back on this feature and this climb! Dec 22, 2013

Not very often you find such amazing exposure in a really quite moderate route.

Great moves under the traverse and placements are solid! Just gotta reach through after the heel hook and find the pulls that are there Nov 21, 2012

The exposed traverse gives this climb a very bold feel. Well done Arjun! Nov 25, 2011
