Ass shot on Paint it Sad.


This is a fun little climb up the cool slab left of "Bolted Arete". Great slab climbing leads up past several horizontal cracks which take good gear. After clipping the route's lone bolt, enjoy thin face moves through the fun, little crux. Climb easy slab up to the tree-anchor shared with "Bolted Arete". The route makes a great warm-up or cool-down.

Rap from the tree-slings with two 60m ropes or make a single rap to a low 5th class downclimb - it's hard to clean gear on the slab this way.


On the slab left of "Bolted Arete".


TCUs and 1 bolt.
