This route recently had a bolt added to start by FA party. Climb the chimney and arete past gear and 2 bolts to the top. There are 2 finishes. For the easier finish (5.8), move left to bolted anchor for Hemlock Arete. For steeper finish (5.10-), move right and pull large roof via flake/rail -- same as for Hell In A Handbasket (bring 2 shoulder slings to extend the anchor).


Climbs the arete/chimney on the right as you exit the entrance tunnel.


Medium sized rack up to a #3 if doing the roof crack finish.
