Immediately right of Henry Spies the Line is a shallow dihedral with a trad crack (5.8/9) and a bolted face just right of the dihedral. This presently unnamed route starts in an improbable tooth-like undercling and delivers a hard crux right off the ground. Swim past this staying largely on the arete with foray onto the face on the right. It has good climbing and good stone, and it is worth the fight to solve the start. A word of warning, the starting knee-lock is probably not worth the pain - there are other answers.


Quickdraws and a rope.

Not really sure how this one is supposed to go. I worked right and had to stretch back left to clip the bolts.

OK route anyhow, I guess.

Tru dat about the knee lock. Waste of time.
