The arete between Fractal and P1 of Synchronicity. Start up a slabby shallow dihedral (5.7) up to a small roof on the arete proper, climb left and up onto the steep headwall. Scale this on good squarecut slots and crimps with decent cams in the slots. At the top of the headwall the holds disappear for a bit, forcing you into a cruxy step right and then back left and into a small corner. Continue up the runout slabby upper arete (5.7 R) directly to the anchors on Fractal.
Good climbing and adequate pro. Led on-sight, ground up, cleaned on lead. With a bit more cleaning and some traffic this should clean up nicely!
The arete between Fractal (on the right) and P1 of Synchronicity (on the left) on the left side of the West Face. Climbs on the left side of the arete linking features.
Set of cams through BD #2, set of stoppers, HB offset stoppers handy, offset cams handy.

So after I came back home and spent some time starring at that burned down house, I came to the conclusion that "buring down the house" is a better name!!! I shoudl have told you that earlier. cheers
