Great route, unlike kingdom Come this has a bouldery section at the second bolt. The direct start would probably go, just some small holds and long reaches.

This thing is rad. Crucial to find the undercling for the traverse moves. I gave this a good scrubbing today to clean it up.

I was trying to think of a name for this but didn't come up with much. Off the top of my head this chilly morning...how about "Arete Action".

This route has cleaned up nicely. Direct start goes at V5ish or so.
