Starman

5.12c, Trad, 65 ft,  Avg: 4 from 2 votes
FA: D. Bloom
Arizona > Northern Arizona > Sycamore Canyon > Volunteer Canyon > N Side > 3. The Middle Ages

Description

 Unlike most north side routes Starman is predominantly a face climb that follows a discontinuous seam. Begin at the shared anchor with Arbalest. Three bolts of relatively moderate face climbing brings one to a horizontal and the beginning of the seam. The middle section involves tricky 5.11 climbing on small offset brass. Load up on excellent small cams and negotiate the very steep bulgy finale.

Location

Same belay anchor as Arbalest.

Protection

Double set BD C3's.(00-2) set of offset brass, 3 bolts
