Description

I wish I had written notes in my guidebook as to exactly what gear is helpful and whether or not there actually was an extra bolt added to this exciting route.

Do Oblique Streak to the ledge and traverse left to underneath Mausoleum (5.9 with interesting moves on junk rock). Do a couple committing moves to get to the first of 3 or 4 modern bolts. The line stays mostly on a blunt arete with captivating and pumpy moves between the bolts and mostly marginal (optional) gear placements. The actual Mausoleum route isn't very long but it is in a very cool position high up there. Oddly placed anchor set-up. A couple raps with a 60m rope to get off.

Maybe someone else should do it and write a better description. It really is a great line so get on it!

Protection

QDs are pretty much all you'll need for the arete and a small rack (mostly for Oblique Streak).
