Description

Climb bolt line using arete if needed over the first of 2 small roofs. Use will find some relief by using the crack on your left as you approach the upper roof. Anchors are just below large overhanging block.

Location

This route is found around the corner from Valentine's Arete. Start just left of a 15' pillar that separates the .12 roof and Foreplay.

Protection

8 bolts plus chain anchor

I thought this climb was only 9+. The tricky part is figuring out when/where to depart the crack for the face & bolts to the right. Feb 6, 2007

It's harder than 9+ if you stay away from the crack for most of the route. Which of course would be contrived and silly. Feb 7, 2007

Contrived, silly, and sometimes a hornets' nest near the anchor. Who bolted this thing? Mar 20, 2007

Several of the bolts on this route pass within a couple feet of the crack to the left. Perhaps it would have been better to let the climb lead naturally into the crack instead of of essentially bolting it. Feb 28, 2008

Starting in the dihedral and climbing through the roof crack onto the face is a really fun variation. Mar 10, 2013

Personally I thought this climb was a blast. Fun sometimes big moves, nice exposure initially, decent length, actually one of my favorite low 10's on the Mtn. However, the top half could obviously go on gear. Jan 11, 2016
