Description

Crux it out on the enticing arete that splits the rough rider wall and the north buttress. Flow up another 30 feet to a small dihedral and roof feature. Crux it out again over this and then cruise it to the anchors. A stellar route - poised to be a classic! Thanks Aaron for putting in the time and work to put this one up!

Location

This route climbs the prow exactly between the rough rider wall and the north buttress.

Protection

13 bolts.

Eric, I initially started up the right side which was a mistake. Pretty featureless stone on the right of the arete. The left side was batter but still much more insecure than I would expect at the grade. I recall working my way right up the middle and climber's left of the arete. Once through the initial bit the rock was much more featured, though I did encounter some polished footwork.

Again the line was simply fantastic, I just had some issues early off the deck. Dec 24, 2015
Which side of the arete were you on K-tanz and did you get to the arete right away? Dec 22, 2015

Fantastic and varied route that will challenge you. Lots of wide stemming with delicate footwork. The first few bolts are likely the technical crux, with very delicate pulling on polished stone with insecure footwork. I thought this was more difficult than .11b. To give some reference, I felt this was at least as difficult as The Rough Rider for which the consensus seems to be 11c/d.

Definitely recommended, just don't expect for it to go down as easy as the suggested grade may make it seem! Dec 22, 2015
