Description Suggest change

This is the left-most route on Rincon's main wall, an arete about 15' left of N.I.C. (a 5.5 dihedral with a tree in it and above it).

This climb ascends the low angle arete to a good ledge for 40 to 50'. [To descend], walk-off to a short gully and back to the base. This route may as well TR'd or just soloed if lead. The moves are easy enough and there's no real gear anyway. 5.7 leaders would not like it.

I'd say more, but there's not much to be said for this route. There's nothing good or bad about it, save it's length.

Protection Suggest change

Basically no pro. I'd call it VS, but the route is so short...

The crux move is close to the ground. You could probably rig a TR from the tree above N.I.C. in minutes.

This route is somewhat runout due to face climbing and rock quality. If you end up off route, you may be climbing is VS territory. [Variation] "Undertow" is rated VS.
