The crux is getting past the fifth bolt. Cool climbing up a series of short, steep corners.


Climb Rhodian Shores or any of the routes that lead to that anchor. From the anchor climb straight to the first bolt. Watch out for loose rock getting to the first bolt.


Eight clips will get you to the anchor on the second pitch of Bihedral Arete.

Dan hasn't named the route yet...AHR stands for Another Hare Route.

It looks like you can clip the first three bolts on this guy without committing to the climb. ??? This bolting style is similiar to this climb. I guess I don't understand why you need 3 bolts in 4 feet.

Referring to the comment above:
The first bolt is either to belay from or to hold the rope in with. #2 and #3 are for climbing. I suppose #4 was not needed.

Good route overall, kind of slick when humid. Very fun moves with some power stemming.

This route is not actually above Rhodian Shores, actually above the anchor up and left of that. Better yet, continue up to the corner and belay off of gear or clip the first 2 bolts nad come down to bring your partner up.

Yes, we belayed from below the first bolt. The crux seems to be reaching up over the left side ledge to a crimp way in the back. Didn't see that first time around. This route is called Vortex in Bob D'Antonio's guide.
