Described in most guides as an option to skip the crux of Plumb Line, this route is more like an option to skip climbing....for 6 to 8 weeks?

Start left of Plumb Line on a large selection of chicken heads. Work up and right towards the crux of Plumb Line, which coincidentally enough, is the crux of Acute Angle. A run-out, and barely easier variation that suffers from no protection.

Delightfully terrifying, Good Luck!


Ten feet left of Plumb Line, the Acute Angle Variation starts on a set of large chicken heads.


Good medical insurance. Bring a pad or a few people with long arms that truly care about you.
