Description

A classic lead origanlly done with only the two SMC bolts and gear. Dave added a bolt higher up which makes the route safe. Start up ledges towards a seam to a small overhang. Crimp past the overhang on the right and work into the scooped out face on right never straying too far from the arete. Move left at the glue in ring bolt around the corner into high crack to finish on the left of the arete. Good moves throughout and some decent exposure as well.

Location

Right side of the Y-Crack wall. Right of the Y-Crack and Straight No Chaser.

Protection

An orange Metolius tricam fits well in the lowest gear spot. A blue Black Diamond junior is bomber in the second gear spot below the overhang. Three bolts take you up to the point where you turn the arete to the left side. I had a nice yellow Camalot up here though some smaller ones would work just a bit lower.
