Description

The crux hits your right off the ground on this one. 20' of hard off-fingers crack lead to a sport bolted arete. Only a couple finger-sized pieces of gear are needed for the climb, then a couple pieces for an anchor up top (or a long sling.

Location

Farthest left route on the formation. Follows the obvious left-slanting finger crack to a nice stance/ledge. Follow the bolts up from here to the top. Bolts are nice fat camouflaged ones.

Protection

Couple finger sized cams for the start and 8 bolts.

Definitely 10+ off the ground - offset, and gently left leaning - but its really only 15' of crack. The arete is much easier, and has nice exposure. Jun 3, 2012
