Follows the left side of the arete. The crux is at the beginning, and it would probably be a good idea to stick clip the first bolt for the first couple of times you do the route. Easier to go a little around the right at the crux than straight up. The climb gets it's name from the gorgeous view of the Clear Creek and Obed Rivers


The balcony is an obvious slab facing toward the trail. A defining feature of Best Seat is a large rectangular hole in the rock. The start of Best Seat is near the base of the large tree at the rightmost end of the balcony. You might find this tree useful to chimney up against to stick clip the first bolt before climbing the crux


sport route: bolts about every 8 feet
