A tad forced as you must leave a crack and do some hard moves to reach the arete. Once there it takes some hold on to get to the anchors
Starts below and left of Blood Book

Is this the route left of blood book with the bolt in the separated block? Maybe that thing is big enough that no human fall force could budge it... What is the size limit on putting a bolt in things like this, or am I wrong, is it not actually separated? Just seemed unsafe to me.

Hey Joseph, ask me about the rock that was on top of that one some time. If you look at the one you are asking about you will see why it is not going anywhere. It is mostly attached to the angled ledge it is on. The angle of the ledge forces that rock (if it were not attached) back toward the wall. So it is like a 200 lb nut except that it is attached to the ledge itself. If you are worried about it don't clip the bolt the climbing is pretty easy to the next bolt and you would not hit the ground even if you fell while clipping.
