Description 

A near impassable variation to Angle of Repose, Calling All Karmas is a short and intense, balance fest! Bouldery in nature and lacking left sided holds, the biggest crux may be finding a good sequence that doesn't pitch you off the arete. Starfish-magnet your way up the first three bolts using what ever you can; in other words, cling to the wall using all four points and hold on tight!

Calling All Karmas
is the short route on the arete and just right of Angle of Repose. A boulder problem with bolts, if you enjoy brainy climbing you may just enjoy this.


Location 

Located on the west-facing wall, this is the third bolted line furthest right off the raised tier. Access this climb by doing an easy "approach" pitch. Belay from its base. This is the smooth face/arete with four bolts.


Protection 

Four bolts + three more on Angle of Repose. A long runner on bolt four and a sling/extended draw on bolt five will help reduce rope drag.

Short, but bouldery and fun. Barn-doory clips.

Superb rock and well protected, but really a boulder problem -- V4, maybe height dependent.
