Deverton Cochrane on the Right Corner Arete. Phot...
Bolted line on arete at far north end of the great arch.
Admin Note: in 2013, Tyler Adams added a 5.9 sport extension to the route.
Per Tyler's blog post about the route: "Pitch 2: Stay more or less on the arete passing nine more bolts up the the same belay ledge as 'The Peterson Route'. Make two rappels with one rope, or one rappel straight to the ground with two ropes."

15 bolts plus anchors. 140' tall in total. Some would say slightly run out.

Has anybody climbed the extension to this? It's 15 bolts and 140 feet in total. Feels about 5.9. It climbs around to the right side of the arete after the first anchor.

super fun two pitch route. Climbed the first two pitches and noticed that there were bolts going up past the second belay ledge. Thought "hey, why not?" bad move. Climbed 5 bolts, and couldn't see my next one. climbed about 35 feet and realized that I was in a bad spot, as the rock was really degrading as I climbed higher and started blowing foot and hand holds. I was still holding out hope for a bolt to appear over a roof but pulled off a softball sized hold and took about a 50 foot whipper before I could see if that was true. So don't get tempted by the bolts above the second pitch, they are not complete.
