This is a cool 30ft face climb then it turns into 40ft of slab. The crux is the first 15ft of a balancey semi mantel.


The Route starts on the Arete left of White Out and just right of the gully on the left edge of the overhanging wall. Start up a steep juggy face. Finish up a slab of jugs to the trees above.

I looked at this today, but it seemed like there was no protection to be had for the entire face, so I backed off. I may have been on the wrong route, or is this just unprotected?

beware those Chinos !!! They may have cemented the cracks shut .....No I'm sure that if it was run out, they would note it.

no Eli your right, it basically has one piece of pro down low and then you gun it to a ledge. the slab above takes gear tho. Josh forgot to add that in the description here. thanks for posting
