Description

Perhaps this is "The Altar"? But it's spelled "Alter" in both Rossiter and Rolofson. This is a steep climb at the left edge of the main/right wall. It's hard right off the ground, with a long reach to fingertip holds and bad feet. Clipping the second bolt is difficult, and you don't want to blow it, since you'd likely hit the ground. Moving past the second bolt is harder then it looks. After that is a total rest if you don't mind stepping up and left. Lean right, clip the 3rd bolt and commit to intimidating but easier moves up the steep upper wall using cracks and sidepulls. The flaw of this route is the fact that you can step left between the 2nd and 3rd bolts to a no-hands rest. It felt like cheating to me, but I had no choice.
