Description

Track Team climbs the prominent, nice-looking arete in the middle of the Free Tibet sector. With no single move being particularly difficult, the overall sustained, technical nature of the route makes for a pumpy, perplexing, and enjoyable rock climb.

Begin with a sustained, technical sequence on the arete for several bolts until you move right on good holds and bad feet to a decent shake on the right wall. Easier climbing heads left around the arete, then back right (way right, in fact) to climb directly up the face and small roof to the chains.

Location

It is in the Headbanger's Wall, on the left of the two major aretes. Begin on a small block to start by squeezing the arete and sidepulls to the left. There is a scruffy-looking project to the left that climbs through black, usually wet rock up to a corner and roofs.

Protection

11 bolts to chains - two bolts are on the left side of the arete and are hard to see from the ground. Stick clip.

I think this line is really tricky and pumpy. Some of the bolts are rusty and would def be a good line to replace those on. It's also one of the few 5.12 routes at Cascade that are dry right now. Jul 18, 2015

The first four or five bolts has really good climbing on it. The rest and the second half of the route turns into not the best rock. If you want damn good limestone check out La Cantina in the roof area, Reverse Cowgirl to the right of Free Tibet Arete, and some people poop which is on the face directly above the cave in the Tibet area.

I did not have a stick clip when I did this and was wishing that I did. Aug 25, 2010
