Great single pitch outing. Good technique required. Route #40 in the ACSD guide.

Begins from the right most set of anchors at the base of the steep "Right Wall". Scramble up a series of grassy ledges (approach from the right) to locate the anchor bolts. These are located just to the left of the obvious "White Arete" feature. This bottom anchor is also the start of the routes "Up Stream" and "Lucky Stars".

Climb up off the bottom anchor to your right. Clipping a couple of bolts to get established below the obvious arete of white rock. Solve the crux getting established on the arete proper, and then climb beautiful, technical moves to the top where the arete ends on a ledge with bolted anchors. Super fun and technical!


12 quick draws to a bolted anchor with rap rings.
