  • Description 

    The name says it all! This is one desperately thin arete climb that would probably get a lot of traffic if it weren't so obscure. The rock is clean and bomber, but the climbing is a bit cryptic until you figure out the sequences.

    Climb the bolted southwest arete of Shortoff Spire to a stainless 3 nut anchor. Extend the anchor over the funky edge if running top-rope laps, or rappel.


    Location 

    Southwest arete of Shortoff spire. Just around and uphill from the paradise routes.


    Protection 

    5 bolts, stainless steel nut anchor/locking biner
