The "other" bolt protected arete on The Building Blocks formation, easily overlooked. This is one of the few hueco and patina featured routes at the City with an eastern/southeastern aspect. A steep slab at the start draws you into an attractive overhanging arete about 15 feet up. The crux moves involve grabing the right holds as you climb through this steep section. Above the good huecoed patina arete, the route completely changes character. Finish the upper 2/3rds while clipping bolt after bolt on your typical City of Rocks grainy, technical slab.
