Description

This is a classic arete climb on great rock with good protection.

Location

This route is on a small, isolated formation, about midway between Mary Worth Buttress and The Comic Strip. It is well below and west of BC Buttress.

Protection

three bolts, bolted anchor/rap (all bolts 5/16")

Short but fierce! Barndoor-y with lots of body tension. Ancient slings on the anchor bolts were replaced 11/2014 - consider bringing two 12" sections of chain and some quicklinks instead. Best viewed and approached from above at the Mary Worth Buttress. Nov 5, 2014

Decent climbing up a rounded arete, but by no means a classic. Roger nailed the location of this, as the 1992 Vogel guide shows it incorrectly (the Bartlett guide is correct however).

Bolts are 5/16" but seem solid. Jun 27, 2006
