Description

Climb nice rock up an easy slab past three bolts to a block at the start of a sharply right-slanting arete. Mantle atop a block (it moves slightly but is solid), clip a bolt and make some thin moves (5.10-) to grab the arete proper and then rail out right along the edge of the arete past three more bolts and somewhat sustained climbing to anchors.

Somewhat contrived along the upper arete, as it's possible to mantle up anywhere along the way, but the climbing is good and demands attention to your footwork as you work to find the best holds to clip from. A good warm-up for the harder routes here.

Location

This is the left-most climb on the main formation and starts just left of an old fence post.

Protection

8 bolts, 2 bolt lower-off

A nice straightforward intro to the area. The arete feels quite exposed. Apr 13, 2008

That loose block was there on the FA and has seen many ascents, so I doubt it's really that bad. Tread lightly and think of it as training for climbing at Tahquitz or somewhere in the backcountry. Sep 4, 2007

There is a massive block, between the 3rd and 4th bolt, that is getting ready to slide off be very careful. Sep 3, 2007
