Description

This climbs an arete on the east face. This arete is obvious from the fork. This is a great climb that protects well. The crux is definitely the 1st bolt. Clipped high it is a safe overhang to fall on. The smooth face above is tricky but not too hard. The flake gives you a nice natural place to protect. My first ascent, I zipped right past the flake, jonesing on the chains. Aretes always add a degree of mental difficulty to me and this was no exception.

Protection

2 chains atop for anchors and 3 draws. Bring medium nuts or a cam for the flake before the chains. I documented this as a trad route but it could be a sport route with a long runout at the end.
