Traverse under roof to clip third bolt and then crank off of shallow tips to high left rib. This should make you hurl. Enjoy a hands free rest at next bolt and set up for the sustained pockets of the classic arete finish on Utopian Vistas.

Location

Overhang (hangover) immediately left of Utopian Vistas.

bolts to chain anchor

[Hide Comment] A stellar route, Jay, thanks. The roof moves are tough and super fun and the climbing on the arete above offers great position and nice moves. Kudos! Feb 8, 2009
