Chris Lane on the crux of Search for Klingons.


Climb the arching crack to a large block, mount that and then head straight up on slabby face past two bolts to the top. A little runout up high but it gets progressively easier the higher you go. One star out of five.


This is the next route right of Doin' Life and start from a prominent right-arching crack.


2 bolts, gear to 2", 2 bolt anchor/rap

This was easy for the grade and the upper slab reminiscent of 'Walk on the Wild Side'.

Nice slabby climb, not really a 5.7 if you're proficient in slab climbing. Not nearly as exciting as Jaws or Lickety Splits, but has value as far as adding to your route list.

Definately a fun climb - nice crack leading to sparsely protected slab. Don't let the R rating scare you, if you like slab, the runout is easy climbing and doesn't need any bolts.

There is now a two bolt rap anchor after the slab eases off. This can also be used to top-rope this climb, as well as Doin' Life and Casual, but takes about 20' of runners to remove the rope drag.

A bit over 100' to the anchors, with midpoint of 60 m rope ~10'' above ground. Single rope rap might work with stretch, but not sure.

I thought it was good fun, wind blowing made it feel a little more exposed but the distance between bolts isn't that bad and right when you feel you really need another bolt it eases way up and your at the anchors.
