Description 

A weird entry move takes you up onto a clean arete. A wide variety of moves goes up (and just left of) the arete.

Protection 

3 bolts plus gear (a #1 Camalot protects an exposed move between the second and third bolts)

Fun with committing and balancy moves up the arete. Crux is past the first bolt and then it's much easier. Tree sap occasionally drips onto the lower portion of this and neighboring routes.

I seem to remember this route being a bit on the scary side.

A little tricky just getting onto the face, but straight forward fun climbing after that. I didn't find it that scary, but it did have my attention.
