The New Philantrhopists is to the right of 21st Century Man. Start with a layback move under a small roof and pull to the left to get the first bolt. You may want a spot for this. Continue up some technical moves for the next two bolts (the first 3 bolts are the crux in my opinion.) Head right onto the arete for some more fun stuff. Mellows out for a bit but the you hit a small roof. A bit reachy but the holds are there. Continue up to the anchors. I have only top roped this route, but it's a lot of fun.


8 bolts.

Eds. note the anchor bolts may be in hollow rock.

This route was really good. I'm just bummed I missed the onsight on this one. The holds just disappeared after the 3rd clip. A pretty reachy route once your on the arete, but super classic in my opinion.

Really fun. My first time I did the opening moves via the apparently standard "layback move under a small roof." Today I started on the face just down and left of the first bolt. Seemed like a good approach for those of us with more technical than powerful inclinations - about the same difficulty, too. Agree that the first 3 bolts are the crux - some balancey moves on good holds that keep your attention. Once on the arete, the climbing is engaging - big holds, some big moves, and picturesque position.

Warning! The two bolt anchors appeared to me and my partner to be on a block of dubious permanence. I'd feel better if the bolt anchors were moved a bit. Otherwise the route is great. The crux is on the face. Traversing right to the arete is a bit tricky and then it eases up. The arete is a lot of fun.

The anchor bolts are in a hollow flake. A little scary....
