Kathryn on the lower half, nice hat!


One route to the left of Stems and Seeds. Bolted arete climb, lots of bolts, one 5.10 move but all in all a fun climb. Lower off bolted anchor.


The arete between Stems and Seeds and Sinsemilla.

I think this is more than a one move wonder. There is good 5.10 climbing several places on the climb, and it's reasonably continuous. The movement is better than many of the monotonous climbs at Vantage.

Very fun climbing. There's a jug and good foot-hold whenever you need it. The crux comes when you need to move from the arete, traverse left a bit and then go straight up. The route is a bit sustained, but well-protected.

There are 2 distinct 5.10 cruxes that disrupt sustained 5.9-10a climbing. IMHO this climb deserves the original rating of 10b. It features interesting movements that break away from the typical horizontal jug pulling you find on many aretes and faces at vantage in this grade. This is a good route for the new 5.10 leader to push themselves on.
