Description

This climbs the arete on the right. It has tricky protection before the bolts. Thin, angled sidepulls.

Protection

2 bolts up top for the anchors on an easily attainable ledge. 3 draw for the climb and a few small to medium pieces for the spaces.

The thin vertical crack at the bottom takes a small stopper at least it did back in 1990 when I put this up. Take a few varies size small wireds with you. Seems to me I got one jammed in so bad I had to leave it. Jun 6, 2017

This is actually a pretty fun route, but the chossy mess at the base of the arete is a major detractor. There is only one location for pro before the bolt (about 10' up), and it's amidst the choss and suspect at best. The crux seemed to be a mandatory, off-balance and height-dependent reach to surmount a blank section. Once through that section, the rest of the climb was straight forward, pumpy climbing. Worth the short hike up the talus. May 29, 2005
