Description 

Start same as He She but after the 4th bolt move left to an open dihedral. The crux is a couple feet of blank rock in the dihedral which can be liebacked or stemmed. After that move left around the arete and continue to the anchor. 2 single rope rappels will get you down.


Protection 

14 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

You definitely need an 80 meter rope or two single to rap. A 70 does not make it... Tricky crux. I stayed in the crack and fell before realizing that I needed to reach out left!
