This unpleasant route should never have been bolted. Grain your way up the face/arete left of Ren cursing as your footholds fall away to the ground and into your belayer's may clean up sometime in the next century. Deserving of negative stars if that's possible.


Just left of Ren.


4 bolts (3/8"), gear to 3" for the anchor

Chris' route description gave me a good laugh. Thanks, Chris. I won't be wasting my time on that one.
