  • Description 

    This is the first sharp arete you see when you reach the landing after the short rock tunnel. The first 30' start out as an arete and then transitions into a corner for the last 25'. Start on the left side of the arete and move up to the roof. Step right around the arete and continue up the face until you reach the corner. Follow the corner to a short face to the bolted anchors. Use long runners in the first section of the climb to prevent wearing the rope over the arete. Enjoy the exposure on this one!


    Protection 

    TCU's to #2 Camalot and a few long runners.

    A very underrated climb in my opinion. Protection is ample and the crux sections have stellar movement. Get on it and enjoy!
