Description

This bolted arete is located about 75 feet right of where the path hits the main rock in a shady gully.

Climb up the bulge on the right side of the arete to the first bolt, after which you need to traverse over to the left side for the remainder of the climb. An alternative start leads you up the left side of the arete for the start, which is probably also 5.10b, but with another 5.10b move right at the beginning.

Climbing through the middle section is sustained, with holds almost dissappearing in places on vertical to near vertical rock. The section between the last bolt and the top anchors is run out, and getting to the anchors requires one committing move.

You should be pretty pumped at the top of this route.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

This is the best warm-up for preparing you for the rest of the climbs here. I like to link prime rib to the route just left for 3 more bolts. Clip the anchor for PR with a 2-3 ft sling. This link makes it 10c. Lots of fun! Sep 8, 2004
You can continue up to the top of Pop Tart and get a few more fun moves in (two more bolts?). Jul 5, 2004
