Moving past the last bolt on Lunar Eclipse (5.10d)...


Stem up and left off a ramp and onto a vertical face with patina plates which is climbed for several bolts to a small roof/overlap at the 4th bolt. Pull over the bulge, clip the next bolt and make some balancy moves getting stood up to clip the sixth bolt. The moves past the last bolt require a high step/reach combo on less than ideal holds and favor those with a good reach.


Right of Lost Orbit is this great route which was one of the first on the wall.


6 bolts, chain anchors

I'm not sure what was going on in May but there were 6 bolts on that route as of 6/29/08. I climbed it with the one of FA party and the route is perfectly safe.

Don't fear people, string that thing up!

edit: Hey Luke, are you sure you're not thinking of Lost Orbit to the left? That route had been realigned and currently sports two empty sleeves.

Fun! At a medium-flexible 5'6" I found the crux much easier than my 6' I-got-no-hip-joints partner.

Super fun and a Holcomb standout if you enjoy delicate slab. Crux (last 2 bolts) is well protected and gym climbers will find it very difficult, if not used to this sort of climbing. Much easier down low with several big rest stances, do it!

Extremely fun route! Smooth moves down low lead to the high crux. Took a couple super clean falls to figure out the palm down high step. Enjoy!
