Climb ledges and/or a stump to the first bolt. Steep climbing leads to a beguiling crux encounter turning the arete and entering the corner. Continuously difficult technical climbing leads up the corner and surmounts another bulge higher up. The slippery crux can be both entertaining and frustrating at the same time!


Starts below the obvious arete and corner system above a snag just left of the midpoint of the wall.

60m rope needed for descent.


7 or 8 Bolts. Fixed anchors at the top.

Quality climbing on this one. Athletic sidepulls on positive holds lead to a balance move to gain the dihedral, immediately followed by a deceptive power move to the next clipping stance. More cool finger-slot sidepulls then lead up to a final, easier crux. Deserves more traffic. Aug 8, 2014
