Description

This is starting to sound repetitive, but this is another obvious line left untouched until now. This line is the third bolted route to the left of Sunset Arete. Well protected, good stone, one brief difficulty with at least three solutions. Still, this needs a date with the brush after bolt three. This is a very fun crux, no matter how it is done. Most of the route is rather moderate compared to the the thin moves between bolts three and four. Good eye by the Ubermeister.

Protection

QDs only. This 55 foot route needs only 8 to 10 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

The climb is the line just to the left of the rope.

This is where it starts to get interesting.  Some of the holds remind one of 5.11 crimps in Eldo, but the easiest solution to this seemed to be not utilizing crimps.

[Hide Comment] This does have nice moves, but the line, like many at Table, seems to be forced through a strange area and is kind of contrived. It seems easier to go to the right at the crux. I know this is not the intended line, but the line otherwise seems forced. May 9, 2013
