Description 

Fun, consistent climbing at the grade; follows jugs up a right-leaning arête, on a slightly past-vertical wall.

Begin on the face below a right-leaning arête and work up and left through some pockets, passing two bolts, getting to the arête sooner than later. Then just follow the arête up right past a few more bolts to the anchors. There are some hidden jugs on the other side of the arête that you’re going to want to find. A little pumpy due to the steepness, but there are no moves difficult for the grade. Ignore a large percentage of the chalked pockets on the face to your right, they’re for an eliminate that follows the line without using the arête (New Release 5.12-)


Location 

Down left towards the creek from Letterbox, on the obvious right-leaning arête.


Protection 

5 bolts to one open shut and one carabiner
