This is the bolted line on the far left side of the East Face, just right of the southeast arete. Climb the large block and clip the first bolt. Thin moves and some smearing get you past the second bolt (the crux), to the start of a hand crack. Using the arete and the crack, move past four more bolts to the top of the pinnacle. Perhaps much harder if you try to stay on the arete proper, but the holds tend to lead one to the crack, actually the finish of Lost in Space which originates on the South Face of Lost Universe. Fun and interesting climbing on excellent rock. Rappel to descend.


6 bolts, bolted anchor

Thanks Chris, you were right as to the proper spelling of Silhouette. I hadn't noticed BC my Word program did not identify it as being misspelled. Apparently, after checking the web, "Silouhette" is a commonly accepted (mis-)spelling of the word. Sep 28, 2007
