Start on great holds right of the arete. Pull through an akward roof/corner, then another small roof with moderate fun to follow. Stick clip is a wise choice, crux is at the first bolt.


Dihedrals area, far left route just before the cliff breaks down well before Jimmywood area.


5 bolts, anchors

Not sure if this is the route I am thinking of. It had some cool moves including heel hooks, toe hooks, and tossing your leg up and over the ledge. Really good route, unfortunately it sort of ends once you pull past the third bolt.
