Description

Start with the route skin mechanic, and break right above the second bolt. Diagonal out the bulgy corner past four more bolts with the crux once you get on the "arete". Once past Skin mechanic this is a three star route.

Protection

The route can be led with only draws; However, the start is much safer with a few pieces of pro. medium and small cams

This is a really fun route been awhile since I climbed it. I do remember it being quite tricky to step up onto the slab itself- kinda weird and exposed. But pebble pinching fun! May 5, 2005
