Description

Start on the face right of the arete in the vertical seam feature that is chalked up. Head up and left towards the arete, ending up on a ledge on the left side of the arete for a nice rest. Continue weaving up the arete and the right face on face holds to the anchors. Barring the ledge halfway up, the rest of the route is pretty sustained.

Location

This is the south facing arete found hiking a short distance past Spine Tingler.

Protection

7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with hardware.

It was a bit fluffy, as were many of the routes at HCR. Oct 16, 2009
I never did this route, so I cannot comment on what I believe the rating should be. However, it was rated 12a/b in the Chad Watkins and Tom Hancock guide. Have people found an easier sequence or was this route just that over rated? Oct 16, 2009

Fantastic route on a beautiful arete, but not 5.11c/d. 5.11a at most, though that isn't meant to detract from the 4 stars I gave it. Oct 5, 2009
