Edge, smear, layback, palm and crimp your way up this balancy climb on the left side of the arete.
Be careful clipping the second bolt on lead as a groundfall is possible.


3 bolts, bolted anchor

I had a hard time with the crux near the second bolt. Definitely sketchy on lead as a fall here would be painful. Just before the bolt I veered to the left slightly off route, then back to the right to match hands on a stable hold just above the bolt. Easy to clip and finish after that.

The 3rd bolt on this route is about 3 feet from the bolted anchor. Seemed unnecessary by that point b/c the scary stuff was over.
