The route overhangs briefly at the second bolt, and manages to be pretty pumpy for the grade.


The route is on the West-facing wall in the corridor. The East-facing wall is part of the De Spectaculis formation in The Arena. The route starts about 10 feet right of the arete, and follows a prominent rib, which is about five feet wide.


6 bolts.



A pretty good route and deceptively steep. I didn't feel too concerned about the wall behind me as the climbing is fairly positive and the bolts are in good locations. Jun 11, 2012
Looks that way in the photo, but the route only goes into the crack for a couple of moves then moves away on huecoes. Jul 15, 2008
Looks like a textbook example of a bolted crack. Jul 14, 2008
Great route! Plenty fun. I would recommend that your belayer wears a helmet. There is still some loose stuff that comes off. Being in a corridor there is no where to hide from the ricochet effect. Good stuff. Jul 26, 2006
