Description

Big air at the top and heady climbing down low make it a fun experience. You don't want to fall as an injury is probable. Falling down low could be real bad. The initial arete is exciting but if you pull around to the left it isn't too hard and you can get some funky gear to protect moderate moves to the good pro. The start of the second pitch has good pro but if you don't have some bigger stuff you will be unhappy if you fall.

Location

Starts same as 8th and Main then steps right to arete. Follow weakness right to slot then back left to easy ground eventually belaying under big left angling roof flake. 2) Climb out left then finish back right. Can be done in one pitch with long runners and sparsely placed gear. Walk off to the right then back along the base.

Protection

Standard rack with maybe two Blue camalots. Save one Blue for the top if you do it in one pitch as we did.
