Description

This climb goes up the nose that is 10 feet to the left of Jump Start. The bolts are on the left of the nose and then straight up the face. Strange climb that is awkward at the bottom but once you get past the blunt nose/arete, it is fun. Most people go up the arete near the top, but you can also try to ignore that and stay near the thin seam so you don't get so far left. That is harder for sure.

Protection

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.
I don't like the route because it is grid bolted - however you climb it, you're never sure if you're actually climbing the intended line. Dec 28, 2015

I don't think it's lame at all! Rather varied, as the bottom is very delicate with small holds and it does get easier through the middle. I would agree with the comment about the bolt placement - if you blew it going for the second bolt you could hit the ledge below the first bolt. May 14, 2012

why all the haters? moderately long and composed of decent rock by red wing standards, this climb is fun throughout. the bottom section is a bit foot intensive (for shorties, at least), the middle has a few fun moves on very positive edges, and the top seem section is straight forward and fluid crimps and locks.

other notes: clip a runner on the first piece to reduce drag unless worried about blowing the moves getting to the second bolt; top (seam/crack area) can go on gear (small nuts, blue/yellow TCU). Oct 11, 2008

The climb is poorly bolted at the bottom but the finish is fun. Jun 29, 2007

Well, it might be better if it would choose where it wants to be climbed, either up the arete or on the face for the first 20 feet. Can't have it both ways. Everyone I've seen climb it goes right up the arete and leans way down and left to clip. Jun 1, 2007

Kinda lame. It gets climbed because it's 10d and next to Jump Start. Mar 5, 2007
