Much like Jolt (5.10b) but on the other side of the fin.... Still an awesome route but not quite as perfect as its neighbor to the left.... The last time I did it there were still a few loose rocks on it, but I think that the traffic the route has seen recently has cleared that up.... Amazing exposure for a route of its grade....

Start up the line of bolts beneath the huge flake/fin above.... Fun climbing leads to exciting airy moves on the edge of the fin....

A must do route only upstaged by Jolt....

Note - Be very careful of loose rock, especially on the top part.  The whole arete is exfoliating. It is not a good idea to hang out below this route or Jolt


to the right of Jolt start up the line of bolts almost directly under the fin...


14 bolts to anchor

Warning! Do not hang out on the flat spot underneath this route and Jolt. You are in the death zone! The whole fin is exfoliating and rotting and dropping pieces, sometimes big pieces that can easily turn you and your dog into tomato paste. Warn others and wear a helmet while belaying. Wait your turn well off to the side. Seriously!
