Description 

This is a great route to warm up on for this crag. It follows bolts up the vertical face to a no hands rest. Continue up the dihedral/corner system for another 10 feet, and then bust out onto the arete for some nice air and a fun finish! (Or stay in the corner for an easier go.)

Protection 

9 bolts, chain anchors.

I rarely say this, but I think this route would have been better if it ended at the ledge. The climbing above is not nearly as good IMO, either in the corner or on the arete.

Excellent warmup, though!
