Bryan moving around the little arete.


A fun and challenging moderate, with some interesting moves due to the fact that it traverses almost continuously rather than going straight up. Starting on a vertical face, follow the line of bolts up and to the right. The rock steepens to a slightly overhanging and often wet finish.


So What area, right of So What.


6 bolts, bolted anchors.

Loose nut on the right bolt at the anchor. If you are planning on ticking this off you may want to bring a wrench.

I would perhaps not climb this as am introduction to the grade. It is no joke for a 5.9... With a lot more fall consequences than most due to its traversing nature
