Take short but nice V-slot dihedral (the one on the right with a pine coming out of the bottom....it's much cleaner than the one on the left) straight up and exit left or right on top for belay.

It's possible to belay or lower from the 2-bolt anchor atop AAArete just to the left, or continue a bit higher and set a gear/sling anchor around boulders, then walk off to the right.


Standard rack, small rack.

Not a very exciting route IMO. It's fairly short, and there's only one move in the range of 5.8, everything else is easy.

Did this a while back but I recall mostly small pro, some behind less-than-ideal flakes. Felt weird for 5.8. I agree about "short" but the pro led to a feeling like perhaps this ain't the best beginner route to hop upon.

One star at most.

Did this today. 5.8? No way. 5.6 or .7 maybe - and one or two moves at that. My partner placed two pieces, and one of them seemed iffy. Didn't need more than that.

I thought this was quite nice for a beginner's climb. It looked hard from below, and so I was surprised by the big holds on the first half. Fun stemming leads past the crux.
