Climbing the upper arete


The crux comes right off the ground and is basically a boulder problem getting past the first bolt, about V5. Bring a stick clip for the first bolt or you can solo up the 5.easy southeast face and rap to the anchor bolts, then rap down the route again to get a draw clipped on the bolt. A new bolt is going to be added soon so that a stick clip won't be necessary. This is a great route with a stout boulder problem off the ground to exciting arete climbing higher up. The upper section is a somewhat consistent 5.10.


This route is located on the northwest side of The Egg. It would be best to climb this line at low tide and I don't know if it's even possible to climb it at high tide but I wouldn't recommend it. Rap off the double bolt anchors.


There are super bomber bolts on this line but, again, the first bolt should be stick clipped until another bolt is added lower. Double bolt anchor at the top that can be rapped off of.
