Description 

This is an odd little route up the discontinuous seams right of Arms Bazaar on the upper right sector of Bell Buttress.

Start just right of Arms Bazaar and climb past the incut pocket into the A-frame roof (small gear). Turn the roof and finger traverse right via bouldery moves, slinging a questionable flake, which you must also yard on, for pro. Either finish straight up via the slightly mungy crack or move left into Arms Bazaar for a greater challenge.

In either case, double bolts get you off the ledge at the top. 20 meter pitch.


Protection 

Bring small cams and stoppers, as well as some larger (hand-sized) gear for the exit crack. A long sling is essential.

This is an overlooked route worth doing, once. A bit dangerous.
