Description

Work your way up steepening terrain placing gear where you can find it. A few vertical face moves get you through the crux. There is a bolt at the crux from the first ascent that can be clipped for "decoration". This is one of the routes Royal Robbins repeated in '69.

Location

The Edge climbs the far left side(edge) of the west face. Walk off the lookout trail.

Protection

Nuts and cams, screamer for the bolt. Newer bolt anchor. Bring long slings to toprope.

great warm up for price crack. A small offset cam makes this route safer, a tad runout without it. lots of variation you can do! Jul 3, 2015

The original 5.7 stays right and skips the steeper section above the fern and goes up the easier lower angle terrain out right before cutting over at the bolt. It is 5.8 if you follow the close to the arete. Very fun! Jun 15, 2015

I followed on this route and found it was great for practicing beginner techniques, especially because it took a bit of improvisation Feb 9, 2015

I led it onsight. It protected well up to the bolt at the crux. Above the crux I got in a big cam (#3) although it might have wedged out a big block had I fallen, and a sling around a horn. The final 20' or so is runout but easy (like 5.3). It had some fun moves. A bit stiff for 5.7. Jul 30, 2013
