Start about 6 feet to the right of the arete in a pair of cracks on a slightly overhanging face. Follow the cracks and head left toward the arete to gain a stance. Climb up the arete and traverse around a small overhang. Climb face back toward arete to clip the pin on the left side of the arete. Head back right and on some really thin face holds(crux) to reach a thank God horizontal crack. Finish up to the anchors above Truth or Contra-Expenses. This route has some tricky sequences, challenging route finding, but wonderful moves. Gear can be a bit sparse in places, but reasonable. Solid for 5.10b.


Walk upstream about 10 yards from Immaculate Combustion. This is the next arete upstream after the Bubbarete.


1 pin, small gear 1.5" and less, heavy on the really small cams, Shuts at top.
