Description

This route is on the face just to the right of the newly bolted PWB Arete. It goes up the route of least resistance to the nasty ledge and then on up to the top. A yellow birch has recently fallen over due to erosion making the top section a little more interesting. Access for top rope set up is via the forth class climbing up the face just left of PWB Arete.

Location

Just right of PWB Arete.

Protection

The top has gear placement but the bottom which is the hardest part doesn't have any apparent gear placements that I remember.

Yeah you can lead this on some bad micro nut placements for the crux and small cams at the top. Did it this last summer. I cleaned it a bunch before I led it so it should be in slightly better condition but that dirty ledge is sure to rain soil onto the holds consistently. I'd suggest you clean it before trying to lead it.

For the sake of transparency I also had 4 crashpads at the base which probably offered better pro than the micro nuts. Best of luck. Oct 15, 2015

The tree is gone, it looks like it might need some cleaning up to maintain any sort of good friction looks kind of mossy. Nov 8, 2011

Has anybody done this climb recently? Aug 11, 2011
Honestly, it has been a long time since I did this climb and I don't have any idea what it was rated but I think somewhere around 5.8+ should do it. We did this top rope in around 2000 or 2001. Nov 1, 2007
