taking a break on a ledge (twist and shout)

Description 

Climb the arete. Getting to the first bolt can be a bit spooky. As I recall, coming from the right is a bit easier. Lots of balancy, technical moves keep this one interesting.


Location 

Look for an arete in the Dihedrals area, just to the right of Ankles Away.


Protection 

6 bolts, anchors

Actually, I thought starting on the left side of the arete was easier, and closer to the bolt line as well. Either way, it's a spicy start, so I'm not sorry I stickclipped the first bolt. Great lead!

This is one of my Favorite 9s at foster. Its a stout 5.9, with a lower crux pulling the small roof after the first bolt and a second crux transitioning off the ledge rest to the face halfway up. Nice exposure and one of the taller routes. Fun moves on sidepulls, crimps a few jugs as well.

Was a pretty intense lead with tired arms. Getting to the first bolt wasn't too bad, good holds especially with the crack on the right. Getting past the first bolt was a little trickier, kept trying to go left and right of the bolt, but found the line being straight up just slightly right of the bolt. Sweet route that seemed to keep going and going.
