BETA PHOTO: A Topo for the Highlander section at McLeod Lake

Description 

This climbs the striking central arete and overhang in the middle of the cliff.

Start on the arete, and make a balancy sequence of moves passed the 1st bolt and up to the 2nd bolt.

Continue directly up the arete to the overhang and make a hard sequence of moves to gain better holds in the groove above the overhang. Clip the 3rd bolt and continue directly to the anchors.


Location 

Center of the cliff


Protection 

4 bolts, 2 ring anchor

Thin and technical moves up the arete lead to a somewhat awkward crux just under the roof. Once the jug is reached over the roof it's about 5.9 to the anchors.
