Fun route that is protected well on the traverse. But, when cleaning the route make sure you follow it on toprope and clean the draws as you go, or go direct to the last bolt so the slack can be taken in before taking the swing. Following on top rope is the preferable of the two ways imo. Sep 25, 2017

Agreed, one has to reach down to clip the bolts, otherwise a fun climb. Apr 21, 2016

This route begins up the arete and then traverses ~15 feet right to the shared anchors with the 5.7. The traverse is not bad, but is made awkward by the fact that the bolts are much lower than would be expected (at hip height or lower).The bolts are fine, but just remember the traverse line is higher.

Not a suggested climb for a new 5.9 leader due to unusual bolt placement. Apr 21, 2016
