Mike Gasch on Naked Blade

Description 

A wicked fun mixed route on the arete of the Monument. Head up the arete to a really good rest on a ledge, a brown tricam has a bomber placement here. Then sport up to the finish.


Location 

As facing the Monument from Pricker Peak it is on the striking arete on the right side.


Protection 

small to medium gear and a brown tri-cam, then 3 bolts or so to the top.

Back in the 90's this route was rated 11c in Mike Simpson's guidebook. I was pleased to get the onsight; 11a does seem more like it. Jackson Falls is a great area, and this is one of the best routes.
