Description 

Excellent face and arete climbing on featured sandstone with some delicate and exposed moves throughout both pitches. The first pitch is supposed to be the crux but the move getting off the belay ledge on the 2nd pitch was the hardest, in my opinion.

The first pitch involves fun face and arete climbing with some thoughtful sections that make you pause and figure out the best sequence. A lot of exposure as you cross back and forth on the arete multiple times.

The second pitch begins with a really hard move immediately off the belay and then continues above for a long (150' foot) pitch of fun climbing on mostly good holds, topping out on a nice ledge.

Rappel the route to descend.


Location 

The bolted arete just left of the large, light-colored rock scar that is capped by a roof.


Protection 

16 quickdraws and 2 ropes to descend from second pitch.

This is such a great climb. Amazing position and exposure for a 2 pitch climb. Although the first few moves of pitch 2 are the hardest, I find the real heartbreaker being the awkward mantel at the top of pitch 1.
