This route climbs the blunt arete situated between the two sections of the wall. Third class up and to the right (and the first bolt), then edge straight up on solid little varnish crimpers to the anchors. The 20-foot face directly beneath the climb can be toproped at the same difficulty.


Bolts to chains.

Being that this is a new'ish' area there are still holds coming off the wall in places. This arete was mostly solid with an interesting/thin crux near the top.

Can't figure out why this gets 2 stars; I didn't think it was all that great.

Years later there are still loose holds on this climb, but it wouldn't have been much fun even without them.
