BETA PHOTO: 7 High Hopes 5.7
A juggy climb up an arete that looks harder than it is. The hardest part is getting above the first bolt, but it isn't difficult once you discover one of what Alanis Morrisette put her hand in.
The first part is vertical, followed by a ledge/set back, then a bit that is almost vertical past the last bolt, then low-angled to the anchors.
Located on the arete just right of the wide chimney found on the right side of the central area of PA's Mother that has the large roof. Or alternatively, the arete to the left of Regular Route.
4 bolts to hanger-and-ring rap anchors. This could be toproped if you don't mind the nasty climb up and around PA's Mother and down to the anchors.

Good climb for beginners. Like the description says, it's not as hard as it looks. The anchors are a bit far back from the top, which makes toproping a little difficult.

Good route, great for the leader who is just getting into the head games maybe. The route climbs very easy, huge holds all the way to the top with no real crux. The route definitely looks harder than it really is. The Anchors were placed well so that they can double for the anchors on top of E.B. Jeebies.

I thought that the only fun climbing here was up till the second bolt. After that it was more of a scramble than a climb.

I thought this climb was a blast. Great jug haul up huge, solid holds. Wish it were a little longer.

Just an FYI, the second bolt is gone. I'm not sure when this happened.

I loved how this climb looks like it could be a little hard because the start is kind of steep, but after you feel around for it, there are more good, deep holds than you could know what to do with.
After the second bolt though it does sort of turn into a scramble.
@ Michael's post: Also, I found the second bolt exactly where it is in the topo, so maybe someone replaced it.
