Starting up the steep arete on Out of Sight (5.10b...

Description 

One of the better routes here, this climbs an easy slab to a ledge midway before tackling the prominent steep arete near the left margin of the crag. Despite appearances the upper section goes at an easier grade than one might imagine and is quite enjoyable with good movement on solid rock.

This route originally started from the midway ledge via a traverse in from the left on loose holds, but more recently a 4 bolt direct variation was added making this a much more enjoyable venture.

Protection 

8 bolts, 2 bolt sport anchor

Best route at the crag. The upper section is really good.
