Step across a pit to a thin crack, then ascend to the base of the arete. This could be quite difficult if you are short.

Alternately, pull third class moves right of the arete and traverse to the base. Pulling the rope through the draws before the second ties in might be a good idea if you choose this start.

At the arete lay off a shallow crack to begin the route. Thin balancy moves lead past three bolts to jugs over the lip. Short, but the technical moves will keep your interest all the way to the top.


3 bolts to a two bolt anchor (all 3/8"). If you do the direct thin crack start, a few pieces in the .5"-1" range.

Quite featured and exposed climbing on the arete but a little grainy. Needs more traffic. Mar 30, 2009

The first ascent climbed obvious cracks straight up to the rounded buttress/arete. I recall a heel hook around the arete being useful to clip a bolt. Nov 10, 2003
