Description

This route starts right on the NW corner of the Marker formation. Don't let the grade get you. This climb ascends the sculpted rock down below and has a fun move/transition on to the first bulge. From here clip the second bolt and work up a move or two on thin crystals to a great rest slab. Clip The final bolt and move up onto the unprotected headwall. Expect fun needles style 5.7 climbing up the headwall running it out about 20 feet to the summit on near vertical crystals. There is a great white tooth quartz crystal feature near the top of the run out to catch your cool.The top is where it gets fun. Has a feel of Stonehenge 5.7R at sylvan lake.

Location

To the right of Stardust and Skywalker on a small slab by itself around the corner.

this is in no way shape or form PG-13. A fall from in between bolts 1 and 2 might be but a fall after the third bolt would likely result in a major injury. Without being able to see the anchors it's really impossible to tell where on the head wall you're supposed to go. I would love to finish this route if you would be willing to put in one more bolt Sep 13, 2018
