This route is located on a blunt arete about half way from the right side of the wall to the QOB. There is a mossy gully to its direct right and the climbing follows the 6 bolts on the arete. There is an obvious crack to the left of this line near the last 3 bolts (looking from the ground up). The climbing starts off pretty hard from the ground, (mid 10) and is hard to spot holds (look a little left). From here gain a good rest at the second bolt and then tackle the upper section. The guidebook says there are 4 Goldshuts and 1 Petzl hanger, but there are actually 2 Petzl hangers, so bring 8 draws. This route seemed harder than 10c, but perhaps I just wasn't warmed up and have to see what other people say. Cheers.


6 bolts (4 Goldshuts/ 2 store boughts) - 2 bolt anchor.

Great route! Super solid rock that keeps you thinking! Stay to the right @ the bottom. Save a little for the top!!
