Description

Start on high holds (may need to use cheater stones) and climb the steep arête. Tricky and sequency moves down low lead to powerful pocket pulling between bolts 3 and 5. Excellent route, with fluid and sustained movement. Too bad a couple of obviously manufactured holds keep this from being a classic.

Location

The rounded right arête on the third section of the Main Wall. Look for the swiss cheese pockets above the third bolt.

Protection

6 bolts to open shuts.

Someone seems to have planted a pyramid at the base of this route which, thanks apparently to abundant water, is rapidly growing to rival those in Egypt. But seriously, don't cheat yourself out of the first moves on this fine route by standing on this ankle breaker unless you just can't reach anything. Unless, of course, that is what you want to do. In which case, knock your self out! May 24, 2010
