Access Issue: Most of these boulders are within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, regulated & patrolled by the US. Details

Description

Begin seated on the pedestal in the middle of the small overhang, sharing the the same annoyingly low starting edges with Zorro. Move up into the thin matched crimps immediately above, make a powerful stab out right for the slopey arete, establish and finish with the Zorro Arete.

Location

The Rapier is located on the same boulder as The Ladder, about 10 yards to the right, where the trademark "Z" appears to have been slashed into the rock by the legendary bandit. This problem links the start of Zorro into the finish of Zorro Arete and is something to do when in the area and you've done all the 4-star moderates.

Protection

An Organic pad to even out the top of the pedestal you start on and EITHER a few pads or maybe a spotter to keep you from tumbling down into a hole if you blow it.
