Description

This route follows the crisp outside arete on Digital Tower between the east and south faces. The start is the same as the bolted start to C++, but instead of stepping left onto the south face, go up the arete. The crux is right off the ledge where the routes split and involves technical heel hooking, chickenhead pinching and crimping. I thought the position on this route was one of the best at the Head and the climbing very challenging. A hold broke after the initial ascent, but I don't think that it changed the overall rating of the route, comments are welcome though. Do this one and give the people at the firetower a show!

The crux was solid, but I had to skip the bolt which seemed safe enough. Then ripped a large hold close to the anchors just before a grand thunderstorm rolled in. This thing is just about pure 4 star 12d. Jul 27, 2014
This line has good position, but the rock is friable. I have a key handhold in my library that came off about eight feet up this thing, be prepared to bring home a souvenir of your own. Sep 15, 2012
A pretty key hand hold broke in the crux sequence, as did a pretty nice foot. Might be a touch harder now. Jun 30, 2011
