Description

Climb the arete under the roof and pull over onto lower angled, but still challenging, climbing above. The last 15 feet are easier, as seen from the ground. There are a few ways to pull the roof, but both seem equally as difficult.

The only thing that would make this route better is if it were more sustained and longer.

Location

You'll notice this striking overhanging arete when hiking in and rounding the corner at Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. It is right of the scoop that starts Emotional Content and King Kong.

Protection

6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

It has become common to start this route in the dihedral to the right of the arete, essentially skipping the first two bolts (particularly by those doing it during the 24 hour comp). If you do this the rating is reduced to a few fun moves of 5.11-, but you do miss out on some neat movement down low on the arete. Oct 5, 2009
