Description

This route was first freed using traditional gear placements for the first 25 feet. Later, the FA party allowed bolts to be added to this otherwise R-rated section. The route is sustained, tricky, and thin throughout - bring your crimping fingers and be ready to keep your eyes on your feet!

Location

Located to the left of Early Arete.

Protection

8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Pretty heinous hand-jamming at the start, and some hard-core stemming throughout. This things kinda schizophrenic--not sure if its a splitter crack, a dihedral, an arete, or a thin face. Apr 16, 2007

First Ascent Party was Ken Kisiel, Dennis Newell, and Scott Beguin, before it was retrobolted by team Bradshaw by approval of the first ascensionists. I believe Josh Smith bagged the first free ascent after bolts were added. Aug 14, 2007

Not that it matters, but I did it before the bolts went in. Spicy. Good route, and better now that it's better protected. Jun 23, 2008
