Description

A great route that follows an arete on steep rock. Start by doing a short bit of crack to get to the arete. Climb past 6 bolts. The arete yields superb climbing in a great position, with the crux approximately halfway up.

Tom Gilje originally lead the route with only three bolts, all placed on lead. The other three bolts were added at a later date. While doing it, imagine what it would be like with only three bolts...

Location

On the left edge of the Le Dent Pinnacle proper.

Protection

6 bolts. Rappel from a horn.

The Crux bolt has been pulled out about a half inch. There's an old bolt right next to it so you can clip both but I dunno...

Also, to clarify, this starts on a crazy looking 40 ft tall, 3ft wide pillar that is totally detached. It's insane that it's still standing. Maybe better to start he route on a nice layback on the left, not sure. There's two bolts on the face above the pillar and then a third bolt directly on the arete so gain the upper arete.
