On the far left side of the cliff is this deceptively easy looking slab/arete. Meander up ramps and cracks to the slab for 20' past potential gear placements. Once on the slab proper, clip bolts and climb past a couple of cruxes, one at the bottom and another higher up. This has seen ratings ranging from .11- to .11c, so I'll go with the mean.


A 60m rope is needed to descend.


9 Bolts; potentially some gear for the very beginning. The anchor might have webbing on it; you should probably bring some of your own just in case.

Classic pitch with great slab/arete/balance moves. If this were more easily accessible it would get climbed all the time, and might feel a bit easier as the feet cleaned up. The first crux between the 2nd and 4th bolts is friction dependent and felt like 5.11, while the upper crux felt closer to 10+. Excellent line!!
