Description 

This is really an excellent line, continuous and sustained with one good rest in the middle.

Start on thin holds and move up in a straight line (harder),

or start slightly left (uphill) and use big sidepull pockets to join the direct start (easier).

Make a few dynamic moves to reach a big jug/ledge and mantle up. Move out right into more difficult and continuous terrain. Stellar.

Location 

Ascend the obvious chalked pockets immediately to the right of "Stars next door"

Protection 

TR from bolts.

Didn't see an obvious start going straight up, moved off the big incuts out left, and then up to the some small holds to the ledge. From the ledge, it moves out right, and the hands felt somewhat desperate. A few small holds and you can bomb the top, and scramble up! Was happy to find out it was rated 11ish, as it felt all of that!
