Description

The Path is a fairly aesthetic route for the Arsenal, offering some very cool headwall climbing on immaculate white rock with a strange orange blob in the middle of a hard sequence. If it didn't have a leg-swallowing hole before the finishing headwall, it would surely be a bit harder and merit 3 stars. Nevertheless, it's a great route.

Path is two routes left of Sprayathon and shares a common first two bolts with Spurt-a-tron (13a), which moves left over the roof band into a dihedral while The Path heads straight up on finger pockets. Blocky, easier climbing above some powerful biz on the pockets leads to the leg swallowing hole. Rest up and prepare for 3-4 bolts of bouldery, sustained climbing in a very cool position on a hanging headwall.

Many people skip the next to last clip on redpoint. Make sure your belayer keeps you out of the trees if you do this.
