Crux is the first 10 feet. Route traverses left along the arete. Staying on the left side of arete makes the climb significantly more sustained.


Just to the right of West Nile Virus. Starts on a Ledge That can be scrambled to from bottom or top.


5 Bolts . Two ring anchor at the top.

Avoid this. It looks challenging and fun but is really just dangerous. It's a long traverse that causes swinging whippers on lead and the chains are so far out left you can take a giant swing out and into another wall or the ground on top-rope.
Not to be bothered with.
