This tall line gets easier as you get higher making it appealing. It is quite a bit easier than the more aesthetic face that it shares the start with.

From the good two handed edge, climb straight up the rounded arete on the left side, right hand on the arete. The crux is probably paddling your feet up onto the starting hold when the hands are not great. Above the climbing gets easier as the holds get bigger.


This problem shares the same starting hold as the Broken Glass Traverse, a long two handed edge at the right side of the middle boulder in the Glass House area.
