Exit the climb left, passing over the last bolt before the shuts on Finktion arete. Oct 21, 2006
I stayed right at the top but should have gone left. I do not recommend going right as there are a few very loose blocks (that look like footholds from above!) that are ready to come down and cream your belayer. Other than that it was a decent route.. Mar 30, 2008

Although the minor roof does have a bunch of scary looking blocks, Manny and I were unable to dislodge any of those still present. Having said that, choose your own way. Jun 8, 2008

I thought the start was actually the first crux. Good and varied movement from jugs to thin crimps and back again. I thought clipping the last bolt before the finish was the crux for sure. Movement out right on good holds does indeed involve "a bunch of scary looking blocks" which creak and sound hollow but everything worked out fine. Left at this spot puts you on a ledge and intersects "Finktion Arete" and involves some steep pulling. Overall a good route. I was distracted by the sketchy sounding blocks and think I would enjoy it more a second time knowing those blocks aren't widowmakers. Mar 16, 2014
