Description

This route makes a nice warm up for many of the other harder lines at this cliff and it's a great climb. Start is the same as for Lambda but at the first bolt head left and continue to diagonal up and left. Use a long runner when clipping the first bolt on Lambda to reduce the rope drag. The entire climb involves making long reaches to really positive horizontals, many of these horizontals offer great hand jams for rests. Continue to a large ledge under the upper overhanging headwall.

Location

Locate the obvious orange Arete (Floaters, 5.10d). This climb is the second bolted line to the right from Floaters. (There's a mixed line between Floaters and Cross Eyed and Blind that is not in the Cater Guide, 3rd edition).

Protection

9 bolts with rappel rings
