Description

Casual sport climb up the NE corner of the Galaxy formation. Follow the bolt line to the chains which can be used to TR a couple other routes to the West of this route. Great route to learn the basics of lead sport climbing on. Low incline with a nice resting ledge about 3/4 of the way up before reaching bomber chains.

Location

Far NE edge of the Galaxy formation. There is quite a bit of vegetation at the base of the route. The bolt line begins at the East end of the gully on the North side of the Galaxy formation. Lower or rap down to the gully on the North side with 1 60 M rope.

Protection

5 bolts + anchor chains

Height-dependent start-- something like 5.7+, unless you are fairly tall, with the rest being 5.5 regardless of height. This is a fun route with hidden jugs everywhere. Not a typical Needles route. You can get a 2 for 1 (Sidewinder 5.9) from the Minuteman anchors. May 27, 2016
