Follow some horizontal cracks to the first roof. The center section has some great off balance movement that will test your body position. Finish on easier rock after another small roof. The finish requires some gear. My partner placed a blue offset nut and a green alien.


Middle of the three routes between Darth Vader and We Free Again Boys...


17 bolts and a light rack

I only used one cam on this climb, a 3/4 inch piece. Otherwise, I felt like it was bolted very well. On the last section I ran it out after the last bolt but it is only 5.6 climbing
