Desperate crux. Harder than it looks, clipping the last bolt is difficult when pumped. Oct 21, 2009

a personal favorite, would be a classic if it wasn't for all the dirt on the lower section of the climb Apr 9, 2012

Crux isn't desperate if you get the right sequence. I got suckered into the wrong one first go, so ended up red pointing it. Also not dirty as of '16, get on it! Apr 17, 2017

I had an interesting experience with this climb. Nearly onsighted, but barely missed latching jug at the crux throw. This climb was incredibly sandy and dirty as was mentioned by a previous climber years ago. It's not due to rock quality however, but rather that this arete is formed by one of the very few breaks in the main section of drive-by. Just look up. All of the water during a rain event runs down this route, leaving tons of dirt. After coming just shy on the crux, I was invested enough to brush the route. Climbed nicely afterwards, and is a very unique climb. May 14, 2018

Fun route with a technical crux that requires a bit of power. It felt way easier after a few runs than on the onsight attempt. Sep 16, 2018
