Struggling with the lower face.


The last line of bolts off the ledge. Personal Jesus is an awkward climb down low, with the arete (I assume it is on) forcing you into reachy slopey sidepulls. Once you hit the horizontal crack, it becomes more straightforward technical face climbing. I felt the crux could have been at bolt 2 or attaining the anchors. There is deck potential on blowing bolt 3, so beware.


The last route on the ramp.


4 draws and 2 for the chains. Rap down.

Very committing moves between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. Fight the barn doors with careful footwork.

You will need protection on this route.

Place a #1 or .75 Camalot in the horizontal after the second bolt.

Standing on this horizontal poses the crux of the route.
