This is the arete that connects Touch Up and Gordon's Hangover. It was put up on lead. A number of bolts lead up to Gordons where you pull the final bulge.


From the belay at the top of P1 of Touch Up, head up the arete. At some point you have to flip onto the Gordon's side of the arete. Rap from Gordon's belay, or continue on.

I always wondered what that was. Thanks for posting. pretty cool

So this is different from the the line of bolts left, going up and left away from the arete leading to Gordons and after touch up goes left? Is that Temporary Sanity?

Obviously I need to go and do these. And Lend Me a Dime. Crazy fun climbing up there.

What continues on from the Gordon's belay? Rather, is it fun?

Yes, Temporary Sanity goes right and up when Touch Up head left. Lend Me a Dime looks better than it is, IMHO. Rumor has it something broke up there and it does not go all the way anymore.
