The arete on the right hand side of the wall.
Sustained and interesting moves to a crimpy crux.


5 bolts anchor

This short but engaging route features balancy moves down low along the arete to a sustained technical section between the last few bolts. Once the last bolt is clipped it's no harder than 5.10 to the top.
