This is the pitch above Lean and Mean and Slowdancer, which follows 3 bolts up the arete. I recommend skipping the intermediate belay and linking the pitches for a great 90ft pitch. You will most likely want a couple long slings on the first two bolts, if linking the pitches.

After "Fear of Flying," my favorite route at Phantom Spires. Airy and exciting climbing followed by a fun rappel. We reached the ground with one 60m.

I struggled between giving the climb 3 or 4 stars and finally went with 4 since the exposure and the position of the line are both incredible. A blast to climb and a good tick for mere mortals like myself. Feb 17, 2011

Definitely the best part of climbing lean and mean. The prow is short, but memorable. Dec 13, 2015
