DescriptionThis is a great line on the west-facing monolith at the Arena!
This line is fairly easy to spot. Looking at the west-facing wall (on the left as you come into the Arena), there is a slabby section that rises to a spot where the wall then gets steep. Just right of this slab is a section of wall that is steep all the way. Maximus follows this steep portion. It goes up a section of slightly overhanging red stone that is pretty obvious, about 80 feet long.
Starts fun and leads up to a section with a tough undercling. Work your feet high and match on a high left rail. Smear on the wall on poor feet and lunge left to a good hold. This section is the crux, probably 11d/12a.
Continue up to the last bolt and a tricky 11c finish.
