Description

This beautiful route would be an ultra-classic if it were located in a more populated area. With small, deep, incut pockets, this light pink stone is remeniscent of some of the finer walls at Enchanted Tower. A trivial un-bolted slab leads to a no-hands stance and the first bolt. From here shoot up and to the left on a steep wall, clipping 2 more bolts before the route leans back to vertical. Three more bolts on easing terrain lead to the lip.

The Samet guide states that one should finish up the arete, but its possible and no harder to climb without using the arete.

Location

The next route East from Adolescent Fantasy, immediately around the arete.

Protection

6 bolts, no anchor. If approaching ground up, bring some trad gear, or solo up 25 feet to the first bolt. If rapping in, clip the lead line in to the first two bolts on the way down.
