Chase the arete via 10 bolts. Stemming the start changes the intent and brings the rating to 11d. Stay on the arete all the way, as intended, and it is probably 12a. This has good climbing and steep, solid granite. It is the obvious line. The exit to the chains is guarded by an awkward move, so save a little juice for the end.


This is in the middle of the crag.


Draws only. Double bolt anchor at the top.
