Description

There is a good photo of this route in Vogel's guide. It goes up some slippery slab to the small arete you can see from the bottom. Then it goes left up to the belay. There are some bolts and chains below where we made a gear anchor-we chose to walk off though.

Protection

Some 2' runners are useful as the route turns upward to the right about 50' up.

Fun, loved the arete part, some rope drag on the rock over the arte. you will pass rap anchors on the left up towards the top, we rapped off of these instead of walking off, although getting to them was a bit exposed. Apr 13, 2015

Fun start like many of the other routes on this wall, but the real treat is the unexpectedly airy crux moves up the crack to the arete at the top of the climb.

Throw a runner over the horn on top of the arete. Mar 22, 2010

This route is also fun and varied, and pretty long for Playhouse. The exposed part on the arete is solid! May 27, 2009

Fun climb and typical of the routes on this wall: low angle start with intermittent pro, a middle section of viable crack climbing, then easy top-out. This one's all about the crux middle section. May 19, 2007
