Description

An amazing line. Start up Golden Stairs and continue up arete. Pass through some technical moves on the arete to a decent rest. Rest up and continue up to the mid anchor then fight the pump through the overhang, another decent but strenuous rest can be had here. Move past the overhang and onto the arete and pull the crux moves to get established on the finishing slab. The crux moves while only V3+ or so, feel much more difficult after all that climbing to get there. To the mid anchors is David 12c a great route on it's own.

Location

Shares start with Golden stairs, between Medusa and Ripped Van Winkle

Protection

17 bolts + Anchors. For rope drag unclip the first 3 bolts on starting slab, and use long draws on mid anchor and the next 2 bolts. A 70m rope is mandatory to lower off without using the mid-anchors.
