Description 

Killer route - overhanging and pumpy with a smorgasbard of all kind of holds from crimps to sidepulls to pockets to slopers.

Start up the dicey beginning moves (11a) to the first bolt (about 12 feet up). You may want to stick clip the first bolt - I didn't have a stick but I was wishing I did. There are a couple of places where you can hook a heel around the arete - other than that you won't get much rest.

A series of hard-to-see holds lead to a bomber sidepull seam. Casting off from there is hard to do- you won't want to leave this great hold.

Slopers lead to the chains. Fun!


Location 

The crag is split by a big dihedral. Left of the dihedral is a nice sport route. Superchunk is the next route left of there, on the arete. It starts out on the overhanging wall just behind the tree.


Protection 

5 bolts to anchors
