This route climbs the overhanging arete above the ledge to the right of "Moonshine". Traverse right along the ledge to the high first bolt (that can easily be clipped standing on the ledge) or climb "Revenge of the Sith" as a direct start. Pull the roof and then jug haul up the overhanging arete to a vertical, but slightly more technical finish. The rock quality is much better than it looks. Fun moves.
Moves: Jugs
Descent: Ring anchors

Clip the 2nd bolt before you climb up onto the next ledge and you will not be in any danger of hitting the ledge below. It may later have a fixed draw also.

I agree with J-rocks comment. A fixed draw there would be nice. Very fun route!

anyone else think the anchors were in a weird spot? felt like it should be farther to the right where the holds and features are. i had to climb up and right of the anchors to find a good clipping hold on the ledge but had to lean out to the left to clip.

I agree with randomboulder; clipping the anchors was awkward. I clipped one low and one above, but the best hold was too far right.

Fun route! The bolting seemed a little goofy on this one.
