Description 

This is the upper pitch to either Step Up or On Deck. From their anchors, go up and around some fairly loose blocks to the base of a defined arete. Head up this arete on fun moves on pockets and feldspar bands. Great exposure!


Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchors

Take care on the bolt off the no hands ledge with regard to falling on to the ledge from above.

5 bolts, chains or 9 bolts and long runners if you want to extend from either On Deck or Step up. A little loose on the shelf but that's true at almost any area. Bring runners to avoid drag if doing it in a single push. Also be mindful a 70 meter rope just barely (like knot in end) reaches when lowering from the top anchor (with gear in place).

Nice route, one of the must-do's for the area IMO.

I want to second Brucy's comment about the first bolt on the arete above the first "belay." If you go direct and peel before clipping the next bolt, major impact awaits. I chickened out and climbed somewhat up the easier corner to the right and made a big reach left for the clip--phew!
