Hobnail Arete

5.6, Trad, Sport, 30 ft,  Avg: 1.2 from 6 votes
FA: Christian Knight
Utah > Wasatch Range > Rock Canyon > PA's Mother


Fun arete and face climbing leads to a cool pillar like ending. Feels more exposed at the top than you think it would.


This route climbs the fin-like arete to the right of Throulin's Crack.


3 bolts plus small to medium nuts or cams.
2 Fixe SuperShuts at the top.

[Hide Comment] This thing has a couple fun moves higher up, and the rock is really nice. I used a green (.75) Camalot between bolts 2 and 3. Sep 27, 2010

[Hide Comment] Nifty little move from the last bolt to the chains is definitely the highlight of this climb. Sep 28, 2010
