This is really just a variation to Skyline Arete. Start as for Beautiful, on the ledge that runs from the top of Lunch Rock, past Mission Control and Skyline Arete. Continue up Beautiful until you can climb up and right onto the face. From there, clip the first bolt on Skyline Arete, then move up and left. Continue straight up to the top of the pinnacle (Orange Ledge); the crux is passing the last bolt. A TR can be set up using long slings from the two bolt anchor. After cleaning, walk East (onto the hillside past the tree) and follow the last chute down to the right.


Just to the right of Lunch Rock


3 bolts, pro to 3" - Two bolt anchor, no rings or chains
