Dede on the Fish and Whistle arete.


Using the bolt anchor above East of Eden and a gear redirect, you can TR this fun line with a 70m rope. The guidebook rated this one only 5.10c, but if you take the line in the guidebook, the opening moves are closer to 5.11a. Once the arete is gained, you can straddle the feature to the top.

This route can now be lead. See Ken's comments below...


Climb the arete just left of East of Eden.


Bolts supplemented with small cams and few medium nuts.

Bolts and anchor replaced today. Several small cams from 00 to #2 TCUs and a medium stopper needed. The crux is moving left and up from the second bolt. Several TCU placements follow. Save the 00 for the last placement (in a horizontal) before the third bolt.
