Description Suggest change

This route climbs the arete right of Dementia. Great position and terrific movement are marred by a slightly contrived start on the arete. The best opening climbs straight up the arete with your chest at the bolts. It starts with the left hand in the Dementia corner for the first move or two.

Start 10 feet right of the Dementia/Malign start. Climb past 2 bolts and angle up and left to the roof at the base of the Dementia corner. Climb straight up the arete. Going straight up at the last bolt is slopey 12c (desperate in summer). Cutting right for a move at the second to last bolt and then moving back left again past the last bolt lowers the grade to easy 5.11.

Protection Suggest change

8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with lower-off hooks. A #2 and/or #2.5 Friend may be useful to protect the moves to the 3rd bolt.

Per Mark E Dixon: it appears that the bolts were removed and the holes were patched.
