DescriptionThis route climbs the prominent right angling arete as visible from Rt 73.
The second pitch offers fun exposed arete climbing with a magnificent backdrop.
There are many moderate variations to the first pitch that start in the corner to the left of the arete, and use the cracks to traverse over to the fixed anchor atop pitch 1.
The pitches can easily be linked into 1 pitch.
Pitch 1: Climb a crack to the arete and angle left to a 2 bolt anchor on a comfortable ledge. (5.3)
Pitch2: Climb the obvious arete above. you will pass a bolt at about mid height. to 1 3 bolt anchor/rappel station. (5.7)
The route can be rapped in one rappel with two ropes, or two rappels with 1 rope.
