A cool route to the right of the first pitch of Touch Up. Climb Touch up to the fixed pin, traverse right into the corner. Eventually we reached out for the arete. Staying directly in the corner looked much harder, so I don't think that's what you're supposed to do, anyone know different? Finish on the 2nd pitch of Touch up.


Rap or lower off the top of the 2nd pitch of Touch Up. A 70m will get you all the way down, a 60 comes up short.


Listed as R in the guidebook, doesn't seem to be at all. 2 bolts protect the hard climbing, then whatever you want for the beginning and end of Touch Up.
