Please respect this beautiful area. Stay on established trails and do not trample any vegetation


Starts on the East face arete, then pulls onto North face. Harder than it looks, especially 3-5.


on the eastern edge of the wall on the obvious arete.


7 bolts and anchors

This was a very good route; great rock on the east side of the arete.

Nice, much harder start to the Virus. Climbs slightly overhanging rock up four bolts with edges, crimps and some sweet ringlocks. Don't even bother with the first bolt.

Great Climb! I wish it kept going straight up the arete and didn't move right.
