Description

This is easy to locate to the right of Hypotenuse, the thin seam in the very large corner. Start up the same low-angle slab. Where Hypotenuse goes up the thin seam, veer right, cross some spicy terrain to gain the arete, and then cruise to the top.

Protection

Long slings for TR, standard rack for trad.

A little confusing. The arete blows, with lichen everywhere and not but maybe one section of good movement, certainly no more than 5.7, excepting the chance or a big TR swing, but the obvious crack between the arcing dihedral and the arete (a nameless crack apparently) is a really fun route, and runs a solid 5.9 imho.

This route is not worth the effort and hardly 5.9, and it is totally safe by putting a nut up in the crack on the face and then coming down a bit to traverse to the corner.

Like the previous comment, don't waste your time on this route, but do the crack in the face instead. May 29, 2017
