Description 

This Is great beginner Trad line that shares anchors with italian arete. Climb the dihedral just to the left of italian arete, follow the inward corner crack all the way to the two chain anchors. Good stances, good protection and an abundance of face holds on both sides of the dihedral.

Location 

On the main wall of the slips just between italian arete 5.6 and maudlin 5.7.

Protection 

Standard Rack, will take a little of everything. chain anchors

Uhhh... What?


that's a solo line, a child could climb that, and probably would, if their parents weren't keeping such a sharp eye on them.

if this were a route, it would barely be fifth class.

really.


well, ok. more like 4th+ class. It's the downclimb for soloing slips routes, fer cris-sakes!

Um, yeah. Thats not 4th class. People downclimb 5th class all the time, the Casual Route on the Diamond has been downclimbed solo, does that make it 4th class?

NOT 4th class. Somewhere between 5.3-5.5 feels right. Nice for drytooling since it's so dirty anyways.

There's no need for Stymingersfink's hating... This is simply a good "learning" route.
Yes, this route is extremely easy, but it's a great place to learn to place gear, with easy rests everywhere, almost zero risk of falling, and ample placement opportunities. Also a good route to bring kids or timid beginners to.
