Lower down on the first pitch.
FInding the route
This route is just before you get to the second overhang over the ledge/trail; look for a massive black-lichen covered face and the bolts are just left of it on the arete. The crux is getting to the last bolt on the first pitch, piece of cake after that. A cam just off the ground adds safety for those who feel it necessary.

Just climbed this route and have to say it is stellar! Manny and the gang have established real gems! Great eyes for lines and smartly protected routes. I led the 2nd pitch and found it throughly engaging. Not as steep as the 1st pitch but very thoughtful. The final pitch was also different from the other two but no less entertaining. This climb tops out with a sweet view. Probably going to become an Arizona classic.

One of the best routes here, and IMHO the best of it's grade in all of Iso. All 3 pitches are great, with fun moves and awesome position.

Wow, great route! probably the best i've done at iso. All 3 upper pitches were varied and interesting - i'd call them 10c/10b/10a and burly/mantlishious/delicate. We saw no need for gear.

The route description needs updating, the first pitch actually begins below the ledge, easy 7 or 8. It is now a 4 pitch route.

Yup, this just passed Walking Dead Arete for my favorite climb out here. Agree with Tyler's assessment! What fun to set this route, nice job indeed guys and thanks for another sweet line.

Joe, most of the 3rd pitch is a huge detached flake. As I bolted the line, the top bolts sounded louder than the lower ones as I hammered them in. I don't think it's going anywhere, it is huge, thicker at the bottom and leans back slightly. Still spooky.

The first pitch (below the ledge) is way fun, and definitely worth doing!

Was on this today and noticed a loose, sizeable block on the 2nd 5.10 pitch. It was a few moves past the small roof maybe 10 feet below the anchors. I pulled on it without knowing (its an obvious jug) it was loose and it definitely scared me. I dont think it is necessarily going anywhere soon but it would do some damage to the belayer if it did. A crowbar could definitely remove it if anyone else thinks it appropriate to get it off the route. Removing it would not change the climbs grade or quality at all.
