BETA PHOTO: Nitroglycerine (5.10b), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles


Easy slab climbing leads to a high first bolt under a small roof, where the tricky crux is found. After the crux the climbing eases and continues up the slabby arete past two more bolts to a final bolt that's shared with the route Powder Keg just to the left.


The arete just right of Powder Keg.


4 bolts, chain anchor (shared with Powder Keg)
