Prominent arete at eastern-end of the Dogwood Crag. Stiff crimpy climbing down low; steep with big moves up top.


8 bolts, chains.


Is it true that the original start is on the right side of the arete? Some guys climb the faint crack just left of the arete to start.

But starting on the polished jugs for This Aint No Party is more fun than either, with the rest of the climb at .12d? If you're like me and want to work this but haven't redpointed, going left is a lot less taxing if you still need to figure out the rest. Jul 12, 2009

First two bolts (just right of the arete)involve a V7ish boulder problem. Mantle and pull up to the super cool, overhanging arete (12c/d from mantle). Sep 9, 2011

Awesome route with varied movement. Not greasy, just get on it in good conditions. Solid for the grade. Quality diminished somewhat by the rest ledge, but I think the rock and nature of the climbing still make it one of the best around. Bring your PE for the RP crux up high!

Anyone have info on the bolted line on the right side of the arete? Nov 19, 2016

Love arĂȘtes, stream side and almost no hike. This is an excellent route! Dec 16, 2016

Thank you to whoever swapped out the old lower bolts for glue-ins. Can we continue with the rest of the route? Happy to pitch in time or money for getting it done. Shoot me a message. May 7, 2017

Just worked this route this morning. Thanks very much to whomever put up all the glue-ins. I've done a fair bit of bouldering in LCC, sent a few v8's but this lower section after hitting the rail was incredibly difficult, couldn't link it. Really loved the top half, need to get some good foot beta though, the face is glass. Aug 2, 2017
