Sustained climbing, but you knew that because you are at The Pile. This climb is a lot easier (off-route) if you get your feet on the left of the arete. Enjoy the pump.


The leftmost line on the main Pile wall.


5 bolts to ring anchors.

Just a heads up that a there's a bird nest with eggs at the last bolt on this one. The mama bird wasn't super pleased when I surprised her, which will likely get worse when the eggs hatch, so probably best to stay away and not stress them. Jun 29, 2017

Must do route in the S Curves area, going off route is very easy tho try and avoid going left around the arete. Extremely pumpy (like everything at dog pile) Feb 22, 2013
