Description

A thin start, which may seem harder for shorter climbers, quickly gains better holds, and then transitions left around the arete. The remainder of the climb involves fun climbing on positive holds over a bulge (crux), which deposits you onto a slab, and then another short section of balancy face before you turn another lip onto a slab and the anchors.

Location

Located on the northwest arete, and just left of Power Bait.

Protection

5 bolts, chain anchors (shared w/ Catch and Release)

OK fairly consistent 10a. Start is a little weird. Jun 11, 2017
