  • Description 

    This route climbs up a cool, left-slanting arete with a nice mixture of technical and more dynamic moves. The first bolt is rather high of the deck but can be accessed by easy 5th class climbing either up the chossy ramp on the left or the more stable but unprotected right side. If climbing the left, beware of rockfall and consider bringing a #2 Camalot and a couple of mid-sized stoppers. This is a fun climb but appears to see very little traffic. Some hold are not so solid, but with more traffic, I could see this cleaning up quite nicely.


    Location 

    Follow the Gregory Amphitheater trail past the climbing access to the amphitheater itself, the route is a fairly obvious, bolted arete in a small enclave on the right side of the trail maybe 20 or 30 feet before you reach the easternmost wall of the amphitheater.


    Protection 

    6 bolts to a two bolt anchor with chains. A #2 Camalot and #7 and #8 stoppers could be useful as well.
