Barnyard up the middle and PWB Arete on the left a...


This route is on the face just to the right of the newly bolted PWB Arete. It goes up the route of least resistance to the nasty ledge and then on up to the top. A yellow birch has recently fallen over due to erosion making the top section a little more interesting. Access for top rope set up is via the forth class climbing up the face just left of PWB Arete.


Just right of PWB Arete.


The top has gear placement but the bottom which is the hardest part doesn't have any apparent gear placements that I remember.

Honestly, it has been a long time since I did this climb and I don't have any idea what it was rated but I think somewhere around 5.8+ should do it. We did this top rope in around 2000 or 2001.

The tree is gone, it looks like it might need some cleaning up to maintain any sort of good friction looks kind of mossy.
