Description

This is a great arete climb that starts off the loose ledge atop the first pitch of Patricia Lake Grack and makes for an excellent finish to that climb or for Sons of Liberty.

After a tricky start (side-pull the arete), hold your breath as you climb past an extremely wobbly flake. Then make some fun lieback moves off the arete to a huge jug which you then mantle. The exposure and incredibly cool climbing make this one of most unique climbs on the cliff.

Protection

5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Really nice 60+m linkup with Sons of Liberty (aside from the ledge fall potential above bolt 1) Jul 4, 2013
This route has really cool movement and few enough bolts to be exciting.

Unfortunately the aforementioned wobbly flake is creepy as all hell. Be careful. Jul 17, 2013
