Don't Tell A Soul

ssssssssssshhhhhhhhhh

A perhaps undeservedly obscure gem for the uncertain arete connoisseur, Don't Tell A Soul is the second easiest [mostly] bolted line on the cliff, put up after Chris found A Turn of the Page. The bolts run out before the arete does, so don't forget a few Aliens and such.

Lurking like a wallflower besides more popular offerings like Passages and Super Slide, DTAS waits in obscurity for the rare suitor. If this sounds like you, clamber up into the scoop right of Passages, clip the hidden bolt, and proceed up the exposed arete to the top.

Draws (!) and a light, smaller, rack.
