This fun route climbs the eye catching arete formed by the end of the main wall of the Red Light District.
Easy climbing for 3 bolts leads to a little boulder problem pulling the obvious small roof. Surmount this and move left to a no hands stance beneath the arete. Catch your breath and then finagle your way up the arete, using nice holds on both sides. No real hard moves, just a little sustained. I would have given the route 3 stars but the no hands stance detracts.
From climbers access 2, follow the trail downstream for 150 yards, passing the shorter routes on the ledge. A tall, clean wall is just to the left. Vapor Lock climbs the arete on the left side of this wall. The start is shared with Autocratic for the People.
