Description

This is the first route you get to if approaching from the south. This route involves some thought provoking airy arete moves through 4 bolts. The crux is moving over the second bolt. Worth doing if you are at Gallows edge.

Location

This is the southernmost route that is located on the shelf above Gallow's Edge proper and is east facing so it gets early morning sun. There is an obvious cut off to the left when approaching Gallow's Edge. Follow this across minor talus for about 100 feet off of the main approach trail.

Protection

4 bolts to a 2 bolt chained anchor.

The idea when it was bolted was to go left around the arret at the first bolt. Apr 27, 2011

This route movement seems a little unique compared to many climbs around White Rock. Balancy movements on relatively smooth rock. It's a shame the movement up the arete doesn't continue. Jun 15, 2010

Beautiful line with good, fun movement. Strangely bolted, it feels a little run out in some places. Oct 19, 2008
