Mandi C leading.


This great route climbs the slabby arete right of the widish Lowe Blowe crack.We usually do Groovin to get to the start which is a small ledge on the right (up-canyon side of the arete). You could also probably climb it from the bolted anchor at the base of Lowe Blowe which would allow the belay a better view of the leader.Interesting and exciting the whole way! The crux is probably moving from the right side of the arete to the left side 3 bolts up. The climb is well protected (it ain't no Viewing). At the top there is an anchor and with one 60m rope you can get down using the Variety Delight rap station.


Its all bolts but you have to do a trad pitch, usually Groovin, to get to it!

The route flips over to the other side of the arete and stays h.a.r.d. without rests for 3 more bolts or so. Thin, exfoliating slab. Well bolted, but thuggish.

I'm not the most experienced slab climber, but this route was harder for me than most 10.d's I've done. Great fun route, just get ready for several hard moves. There's an option to bail left into the Lowe Blow route, but bring some pro if you don't care for the long run-out to the chains. A 70 meter rap will get you to the anchor at the base of Lowe Blow.
