This climb makes the hike in worth it!! it has everything from face moves to handjams, with a overhanging jug haul to the top. May 27, 2010

And there's a great view when you lose it and swing out. Best to try this route first, it pumps you quick. I had nothing left for it and only got about halfway up. Now I have to hike back up. Totally worth it, tho. Sep 22, 2010

Deceptively hard about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up, but the gear is good all the way. Carry a BD #2 to protect the crux - easy falls into air. Jan 24, 2014

Great climb. I found it very tempting to get drawn into the easier terrain of White Arete to the left about 1/2-2/3 of the way up.

An easy anchor set up would be a couple of 20' cordelettes slung around the boulder at the top, with a couple of nylon runners for extension over the final roof with the hand crack. Jun 3, 2014

The unnecessary fist jam in the top is amazing! You can comfortably deadhang from it for days! Jan 3, 2015
