Tall cool one.


Nice and pumpy sport/trad Was featured on the cover of Climbing Magazine 1992, White arete. I was informed that a couple of years ago this route has went free.


About 5 ft. past Pocket Wilderness to the right. On the obvious arete.


Has two hangers and the rest small pro to the top.

The FA of this was done by Chris Chesnutt in May of 1990. It was chosen for the photo shoot that ultimately ended up in both Climbing and in the High Exposure Calendar (Shake Rattle and Hum made it into the calendar) because of its outstanding location out on the point although the photo on the cover didn't really show this. Chris was always a bold and strong climber! TCU's give the route protection to add to the bolt.
