Description

This route has highly enjoyable and technical climbing on very good rock.

Climb a bit of a slab start to access the arete and then nice face climbing to the anchors.

This would be a classic anywhere (Yosemite included) if it weren't for the first 10 feet of the route. Nonetheless, it is a little-traveled classic of the area.

Protection

~12 bolts plus anchors.

Wonderful route, just climbed it today for the first time. Incredible arete feature makes this climb unique for N. Cheyenne. Everything is there (hand and footholds), you just have to really look! Best sport pitch I have done in the Springs area. Get on it! Nov 1, 2016

Two of us swapped lead a couple of times but were just out of gas one bolt below the anchor. Silly shame, but booty biner sacrificed. Use it in good health.

Quoth Patrick, "It was great. The climbing alternated between bad feet and bad hands and bad feet and no hands." Nov 1, 2015

Great route it keeps you on your toes and about to barn door several times. It has about 12 draws not including anchors. Nov 19, 2008
