Description

Sit start the arete with hands on each face and both feet on the left. Move up with the right hand to a gaston and then up again to a sloper. Work the feet up and mantel over the top (crux.) There's a small, bad hold way up for the right hand to help with the mantel.

Location

In the "warm up" area. It's the obvious arete with the two foot shelf boulder at the base.

Protection

Pads and spotters, kind of an akward landing to watch out for with the shalf boulder.

Sick route! By far my favorite at Warmup Area. That top out is a little spicy, too! A Blair classic. Jul 11, 2016

Once you have both hands on the lip, get your right foot up and reach for a shallow dish a ways back with your right hand. Press it out. It's hard but not too cryptic once you find the holds you need. Mar 9, 2010

yeah my send is probably years away too but I am liking the face option the best. I was able to get my hand over the lip on one attempt from the sit start but I need to work the top out, anyone got secret beta to share for the top out? Mar 8, 2010

Great route, my send is still years away! I've found the working the arete is the way that works best for me, I used to try to work up the face and that never really panned out for me. Mar 8, 2010

Make sure you warm up your fingers for the bottom section, make sure you warm up your head-game before you top-out. It isn't a highball but it scares me and feels desperate anyway. Apr 30, 2007
