Description Suggest change

This is another of the many undocumented climbs established around the Storm Mountain Island area. It is a variation to Encore's second pitch, or can be climbed in 1 pitch from the ground starting on Encore or The Flake. It is kind of a strange climb. Which side of the arete do you climb on? Right side seems fairly hard and contrived, while the left side is quite easy but the bolts are positioned in a way that your rope keeps getting hung up on the sharp edge of the heavily featured arete. Either way, climb up the slab clipping a couple bolts until the wall steepens then decide which way to go. I climbed the left side, if you go this way the crux is on the slab around the second bolt.

Location Suggest change

This climb ascends the arete located to the right of The Flake and to the left of Padded Cell.

Protection Suggest change

Mostly bolts(10 I think), some gear may be heplful for those at their limit, but not really needed. Rappel from Padded Cell anchor or walk off.
