Description 

This flawed route is the rounded arete to the right of "The White Dihedral" which is just right of "High Tops". In it's original form one climbed the arete to a BS convenience anchor about 10 meters below the top of the formation and lowered off. The anchor consisted of a 3/8" bolt and a piton in the crack above. The runner connecting the bolt to the pin was an unnecesary eyesore. Above this anchor the arete continued to the top and would have been the way to finish this bland route with one or two more bolts (TR'ed at 5.10-). We removed the offending runner and climbed the top section of the white dihedral to the top (enabling the TR finish).
