Description

The sharp arĂȘte on the front of the main rock formation at the bunker. Start off the ground for full value VS starting off the block behind the route. Climbs a very bouldery and wind polished arĂȘte up arguably some of the best moves on any sport climb at Vedauwoo.

Protection

3 bolts and an optional nut where the top connects with Spirits Rebellious.

I think this is one of the best routes at Vedauwoo. Perfect moves on perfect rock. Hit it on a cool day, the left hand holds on the arete are as smooth as river rock. Jul 29, 2008

If you're into it, hanging extended/longer quickdraws on the two upper bolts make those clips more feasible. Stunning chunk of rock with really, really fun climbing. Aug 6, 2008
Bring your stick clip for the last bolt then you don't have to worry about those long draws, plus it saves energy for softly tugging your pud. Apr 27, 2009
I can give you a hand, Squatting Bear. May 11, 2009

5.12+ and V7 don't coincide at all. V6 would be .12+, being either .12c, c/d or d. V7 is considered a crux sequence commensurate with .13a. Jan 23, 2017
