A beautiful stunning line with excellent rock and great movement. A cool low crux from the first to the second bolt gets you to a great rest on a small ledge. Now suss your way through amazing thin patina edges and crimp holds that seem to magically appear just when you need them. The climbing eases off when you can grab the left side of the arete again.


the middle of the three bolted aretes. One bolted route downstream of Vanilla Voodoo


9 bolts to leaver biners

The first and fourth bolt are complete spinners right now. When I got on it the other day the nut on the first bolt was hanging on by 1 or 2 threads and I could finger tighten about three full turns.

With a long stick clip it's possible to clip the second bolt, and definitely recommended because it's guarded by a pretty stout boulder problem and it's a pretty hard clip if you clip it the most obvious way.

Some of the higher bolts are angled so the hangar isn't flush with the rock and it looks like the bolt is pulling out of the hole (not the case, but it definitely wouldn't hurt to redrill those holes..)
