Description 

The Highlander:

So tall and scary and awesome... Do attempt this unless you climb several grades higher that listed, and have a solid head game. Also this has a very bad landing, so a group is necessary for spotting and pads. If you have all of these prerequisites, than youre in for an awesome climb...

Start on the low right portion of the right ramp, at the end of the ample juggy crack/seam. negotiate the bad feet and work through jug after jug to gain the top of the triangle/pyramid/ramp formation. press out a mantle over top of the ledge/platform.

when up on the balancy platform 15-20' off of the deck, reach overhead to the next ledge. once you gain this giant juggy ledge, press out a heel hook mantle over the lip to another balancy reach for the final jug ledge.

when you gain the ledge at the top (30' up) stand up and press out the easy top out for the send. This all in all is approximately 35 feet of climbing... such a fantastic line, but be sure to have all of the gear to pull it off.
