Description

Climb Warm Up for about 10' or so and then cut right to the amazing arete. Subtle yet taxing moves up the arete lead to a technical crux just before the last bolt, after which it's a cruise to the top.

This is a great climb that requires good footwork and balance...cooler temps don't hurt either. It's possible to climb the arete on either side, but I found it easier to move to the right side after the first bolt and then cut back onto the left side just below the last bolt.

Protection

3 bolts, anchors (all 3/8"), a few pieces to 3" for the start

As of my last visit (1/07), I could only locate two bolts on this route. Jan 12, 2007
