Dave dances up the arete.
"Picasa 3'ed" by Dave R...
Stay on the arete left of End to End
. This is easier said than done. This route, End of an Era
, and End to End
are often inter-mixed due to bolt placement.
Starting on the arete proper and following the bolts left onto the face with easier climbing to the anchors gives you "Death of a Dinosaur".
Start on End to End
and crossing to D.O.D. when the climbing gets sustained finishing on the easer top section gives you "End of an Era
Bolts and pins.

I climbed this today and found there to be a pretty hard crux between bolts 2 and 3. Probably harder than 9+. There is a point where I basically had to heel hook my left foot and then smear with my right. About halfway up the holds get bigger and climbing gets easier...but the crux was reasonably spicy. I usually don't end up using heel hooks on 5-9+ climbs. Have some key holds in this sequence broke off on the crux?
