I felt the crux of this route was getting off the ground. After that it was smooth sailing.

I blew my onsight on this route when I pulled my rope up thru a sling girth hitched on my belay loop. I had to correct my sling so it wouldn't drag my rope and I ended up pumping out. This would have been one of my most favorite on sights just due to the nature of the climb. One of the most classic 10 arete climbs at the ranch.
