A nice little hidden arete climb. Hard bouldery moves off the ground is the crux, which gains the first of two bolts (may be wise to stick clip it). Once on the arete, the difficulty eases...but not by much. A few more moves gains the second bolt. You can run it out to the double bolt anchor above, or bring some small cams (i don't remember what size fits).


Follow the trail past "Handicap Direct" and "Special Olympics" all the way down to the base of the cliff that faces the highway. Look for a short, clean, arete with 2 bolts on it.


2 well spaced bolts, small cam for the top out.
