Start either under C1 or traverse in from the right for an easier start. Once at C1, go straight up on huge holds for 2 clips to a very good ledge (LLLL).

Sustained 8ish climbing straight up for 3 clips on good pockets and edges gets you to a great stance. Continue on with more great holds for 2 clips and then cruise the final short crux bulge section and then climb sharp pockets to the anchors.


This is in between First Blood & Period Epic.


11 clips to anchors.

I thought this was a fun moderate route on the blunt arete about 12 feet right of "First Blood." For me, the crux was clipping the first bolt, and then again reaching the bolt just about 15 inches left and below where Nan is standing in the photo. BTW, it's a long route to the top -- a 60M rope should be okay, but tie knots in the end to be safe.

MJM -- the bolts were all thoughtfully placed; thank you for putting up a fun moderate route!
