Description

Contrived climbing up right side of formation. Start with layback. Move across and up blank awkward section to generic Alabama Hills edge pulling. If the start of the climb were 6 feet to the left or right, the line would be more natural and 5.8.

This is a great line. It's more than just pulling thin edges on near vertical faces, which is more than you can say for most of the climbs here, and it includes a few dihedral moves then a sweet step out on to the face.
Definitely climb it - unless you're really that bothered by the fact that it doesn't follow the same feature all the way and instead gives a nice variety of moves, in which case, don't do it! Nov 7, 2016

Contrived. Sure the stemming off the deck is fun, but the move to the face isn't natural so much as it's simply the thing to do if you want to stay on route as it was intended to go. You could easily milk the arete a bit longer and bypass the crux completely. May 9, 2016

Really enjoyed this climb. Nice dihedral with crack and steming to face climbing. Moving from steming to face climbing was the crux for me. Very fun climb. Mar 14, 2014

Also enjoyed this route. Crux for us came after stepping onto the face and working right around the corner to gain the headwall. Fun lead. Jun 9, 2013
atypical moves for Ahills. Thought it was a good, varied climb. Mar 23, 2011

Found this route to be very natural. Maybe a little awkward at the bottom but still fun. Nice hand jam leads you out of the awkwardness and some stemming out onto the face. Most agreeable climb on the rock, frankly. Apr 24, 2008
