Description

This is the obvious bolted arete that soars up above and to the right of the North Face routes on the Monolith. It involves intricate and sustained 5.11 sequences to a rest below a great crux boulder problem on the arete, involving creative heelhooking and some long spans. It might be easier for taller climbers. The runouts above the crux are very manageable. A bit soft for the grade, but very involved. A must do!

Burly, definitely bouldery and technical, but not all that pumpy and I question the 'soft' bit. Jan 30, 2011

I second Collin, soft for the grade it's definitely not. Great, technical climb with a powerful crux. Sep 25, 2013

Best hard route in the park. Thin, hard 5.11 moves right off the deck on tiny knobs and side pulls. Several feet have broken here in the last couple years making it harder. Traversing out to the arete is spicy. A fall will come close to the ground. The boulder problem is sick, and can be done a couple different ways. Feels V6ish. The bolt at the crux and the bolt on the upper slab are rusty and could be replaced. 12b. Dec 22, 2018
