Mr. Hat on "Column Direct", 5.9+, nearin...
Climb the detached leaning column without using either side of the arete for holds. The crux comes about two thirds of the way up this large block. Reach the top of the block and continue up the right side of the face taking a direct route. A fun and challenging route, that tests your balance and flexibility.
This route lies in the middle of the prominent column on the left, further side of the Minnesota strip.
Nuts, and small cams should do it. Standard top rope setup.

Watch out for wasps on top of the column. Almost put my hand in it when I heard the buzzing. Is it possible to get them sprayed or should we just leave them?

Did this one today. Bring some BD micro stoppers or similar to protect the crux; small Wallnuts wouldn't seat as nicely into the crack 2/3 of the way up the column.
