A strange little obscurity in the Composure Gully, on the right side before you tunnel under the big boulder. It takes an eagle eye to spot the one bolt...Might feel R to some.


Walk up past the classic Disciples arete. Perhaps 100 feet up the gully is a small arete with a bolt 1/3 of the way up. Climb! You can set up anchors in cracks at the top.


Thin gear, one quickdraw. You may like a TR and brush as I'm not sure this route has seen an ascent in the last few years.

Does this route climb the arete with no pro till the horizontal where a pin is. Then to the bolt and finally to the top. Or u start in the dihedral then traverse across the horizontal then up to the bolt?
