Description

One of the NRG's best 5.12 aretes, with a fairly short crux compared to many other Endless routes of the grade. Start in a sort of crack feature on the left side of the arete before doing a weird move up onto a small ledge (the original line started to the right; not many people do this start). The crux involves a very crimpy and sequential right traverse to and around the corner of the arete. After this, lots of 5.11 climbing to the anchor.

Location

First bolted arete about 75 feet right of Legacy and Discombobulated. Immediately to the right of Rock Lobster.

Protection

8 bolts to bolted anchor.

Overrated and overgraded. 12b grade is legit for the old start, which felt like a forced line. The bolts have been moved to the easier start (left of arete) for safety reasons. Still a great line, but not 12b and not an ultra classic by endless wall standards, IMAO. Sep 13, 2017
