Description

This is a steep bolted arete at the top of Saddle Rocks. The rock is mostly good compared to the routes down the hill from this one.

The bolts are in the right place to protect all the difficult moves but there is a significant runnout from the last bolt to the summit- very exciting! Not recommended if you are just breaking into 5.9 slab routes though- possibly a little more difficult than 5.9.

Location

Atop saddle rocks

Protection

7 bolts. The last bolt is a rusty flexing 1/4" button head. Run it out from this bolt to the top of the formation. I set a natural anchor using slings on horns.

From the right side of the formation you can down climb a wide crack to an anchor and rap down to the gully with a 60m rope.
