Description

This climb starts from the top belay above The Nelsonator-II and takes the ramp on a bit of diagonal to pick off the long, obvious arete. Some frustrating route finding (hands on both sides of the arete!) gives way to enjoyable climbing on the arete. From the double bolt anchor at the top, rappel back to the routes right of N-I or back to the N-I belay, a second rap drops you down the corner system, from which a short scramble takes you back to the AKT belay.

QD and a 60m rope.

Like many, I have been way off in rating things for reasons of mental drecipitude or simple cussed sandbagging. I couldn't find the frigging jug to save my life. If I had been standing around on 5.2, I'd still find it hard to see. So I'll let anyone but myself call the rating. Sep 4, 2001
Nice photo of the crag with the new routes. Any chance of getting them numbered or labeled? Sep 5, 2001
