Description

The line straight up the middle of the gray slab. You traverse from dry land across the slab to the first bolt (scary 5.8), then clip the two bolt as you pass quality slab climbing to the top. Certainly a scary 5.9 lead.

Protection

There are two bolts to a 3 bolt anchor, but no rap chains, so the last person to climb usualy walks off the right side of gray slab (5.3). You can also set up a top rope by soloing the arete first.

Falling before the first bolt would not be fun, and you have to traverse a long way on slab before you get to it (5.8).

Ropes often end up wet too.

This route only has a 2 bolt anchor at the top. A third would be nice since they are smaller older bolts. They look ok though. Feb 6, 2006
