Description

A classic jugfest on the underside of an overhanging arete. This route is one of nature's convincing arguments to wean sport climbers off their gym habits. No move too hard for any 5.10 climber, just try to climb fast.

Location

The arete marks the far left side of the Outback Wall, approximately 60' to the left of the face with the 5.10a classics Pentecost and The Four Feathers.

Protection

6 bolts on the right side of the arete. Bolted anchors.
I love the spicy runout after the pumpy arete and I believe it flows very well to "turn the corner" onto the beautiful, south-facing wall guarding the anchors. Just my opinion. Beta: have all your QDs on your right side! Apr 3, 2017

An amazingly sustained climb. However, I found the runout to the anchors to be unnecessary after the overhanging pumpfest. It would be nice if the anchors were closer to the arete because the arete can be climbed to the top. Jun 13, 2015

One of the best moderate sport routes at Sams. A must do if in the area. Climb fast is the key. Really fun. Dec 23, 2013
