DescriptionThis 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.
