Description

A gradually steeping slab next to an arete leads past three bolts, and a balancy stand-up move, to the security of a ledge. Higher, another delicate sequence leads into a crack which is jammed/liebacked to the anchors.

Short but high quality with enjoyable moves throughout, particularly on the lower arete section.

Location

Climbs the striking arete 70' left of Agony Arch; immediately left of this climb is The Degenerate (5.12b) and just around the corner to the right is Corruption (5.12b/c).

Protection

5 bolts, open shuts

I did the FA of this route in the mid 1980's. Were the bolts that I placed not there in 2003? Jan 12, 2012
