This route is like the younger brother to Ibex. If you warm up on this route you'll be ready for Ibex. The slabby nature and small holds of this route require balance and precise footwork. Move up the face along the right avoiding the arete. Once at a good stance on a large platform, move horizontally about 6 feet by high stepping, right hand crimp and a step-across move to the opposite corner avoiding the left corner (to some degree). Move up and right under a slight roof and surmount the tower. Ta dah!

I'm not sure how the line Andy describes is supposed to go. The only way I know to climb this slabby face without using the aretes goes at 10+ or harder. You go straight up from the big platform described above. Apr 9, 2017
