Description

I'm a little uncertain about this route. It seems like the obvious starts are either in the chimney on the left (probably not Bob's intent, and definitely not 12a), or to start on Sister of Mercy and then go left, but that's probably also a little soft and doesn't jive with the first bolt. It may be that you're supposed to campus up the overhanging arete.

The rock and climb is superb higher on the arete. My wife liked this one, because it's a rare arete that's not exposed.

Location

It is in the alcove across from the Virgin.

Protection

Bolts.

Climbs really naturally from the start of Sister. Cool, bubbly rock. Sep 15, 2012

There's a crack that goes up between the start of Sister and the arete. That is probably the only way this way this thing is a 12. The first bolt does very little to protect a fall if you start on SoM, which is how I did it. May 8, 2017
