Description

A short but fun line. None of the holds look quite as good as they are. Start down and to the right of the fist bolt (starting directly up the arete is significantly more difficult) and then make your way up the arete.

Location

This is the left-most bolted line on the east face of the Ska Block. It is just right of the arete.

Protection

Four bolts to chain anchors. There is a belay bolt, too.

Originally tried bolting this something like 5 years ago, but the drill battery ran out; I never got back until Tristan got home from his mission. He was super excited to put up something like 100 FA's in a year so this was easy to get back to. Oct 10, 2010

This climbing is nothing super special but the rock is really, really good. The position of the climb is nice, too, with great views of Squaw Peak. Some think the route is 5.8+, others 5.9-. If you find the best holds, it's 5.8. If not, it's a bit harder. Apr 27, 2008
