Description

Big Dog ascends the right overhanging arete on this formation. The big landmark is a very overhung start, up to a big volleyball-like sloper midway up the first section.

This route has fun overhanging moves and leads to an interesting vertical face for the second half. The grade has settled in at 12 a/b with appropriate beta. The entry moves to gain the Volley ball hold are a blast. This leads to fun and varied face climbing on the headwall up to the anchors. Overall a stellar route. Kudos to Nelson and Rolofson for equipping this route and having the vision to establish this formation.

Protection

10 bolts and a two bolt anchor.
