Description

The first bolt is low and protects you off the deck. Climb up to a nice ledge, where the second bolt can be clipped from a great stance. Continue up through a small bulge and to the anchors. Nice exposure for the grade as it climbs just left of, or on the arete. The climb can be done along the arete, or slightly left of it for two different variations.

Location

Far left end of the Rad Wall on the arete. On the right side of the entryway to the corridor. This route is listed as #1 in the
The Rad Wall at El Rito seen from the top of the Schoolhouse Slab. All ratings shown here are quoted from the [[North American Classics online topo]]naclassics.com/elrito/sport…. .

Protection

5 Bolts to chain anchors. In September 2016 a chain draw was added to the first bolt to allow the belayer's end of the rope to stay clipped at all times preventing the all-too-common belayer-and-climber-swinging-out-together incident while cleaning.

A belay bolt was added in September 2015 at the base of this route. Please use it to avoid swinging out over the eroding area between the switchback and tearing that area up even more.
The lowered climber should take the trail/switchback to return to the base of the climb instead of going straight back to the belay and tearing up the eroding area. The logs and rocks are in that area for reason. Please don't shortcut switchbacks.
