Description Suggest change

Consistent exposure characterizes this 60' pitch. Expect small hands and feet while dry humping the arete the whole way. Crux comes at the 5th bolt when you bust a hard right and layback like your life depended on it to the anchors (a fall between the 5th bolt and the anchors would be very ugly) (this section is not very toprope friendly, but still doable). A link up of this pitch and "Sickness Unto Death" at the top would be AMAZING!

Location Suggest change

You can rap down from the top of the Naked Edge, or better yet, climb the 1st 3 pitches for a warmup. Regardless, you will start from the sloping ramp belay at the top of the 3rd pitch of the Naked Edge. Hanging a rope at the top, rapping down and then Jumaring back up is not bad. Your choice. Adventure guaranteed.

Protection Suggest change

5 bolts(8mm twisted leg glue-ins) go straight up the arete, the anchors share the top of the 4th pitch of the Naked Edge.
