Description

P.1) Clip a bolt over the overlap and then pull the overlap on good crimps. Run it out a bit after this on solid holds to a second bolt and a bit of a slab crux. Head to the two bolt anchor up and left through the bushes.
P.2) Slightly chossy, but worth it for the view. Head through the broken corner right off the anchor, aiming for a right arching corner. Pull through this corner and over the top to the two bolt anchor. Sit down on the lawn chair like rock formation and enjoy the commanding view of the notch and across to VT as you belay your second up.

Location

Down and right from the Natural High clearing. The first bolted route to the right of Syko's Arete.

Protection

Standard rack. 2nd pitch has some PG-13 type climbing on suspect features. a 2 rope rappel, or 2 single rope rappels get you back to the base.

A fun day that was. Originally there wasn't a bolt on the slab 2nd crux (Jon "encouraged" me to keep moving and that a bolt wasnt needed, after following, he suggested putting one in. A nice birthday present!!!) May 28, 2010
