Description

"Start at the Opdyke Crack, then head right out to the arete and up." - 2008 Ozone Guidebook

Climb large flaky jugs through a series of big pulls. A neat sequence of tricky moves with good rests, the crux being (perhaps) between bolt 3 and 4. Anchor placement is a little awkward, but you can easily access the anchors for Vicious, above and to the left.

Location

On platform to the right and above the start of Snake Face

Protection

6 bolts

Found this to be really enjoyable, nicely exposed arete climbing; though at 6'2" I thought it went easier than 10a, even climbing it in a little drizzle. Reachy moves to good holds. Original anchors were rusty/spinning, June '17, decided to use anchors for Opdyke's Crack instead. Jul 25, 2017

Metolius rap hangers at anchor are spinning and bolts are rusty. But great fun! Apr 10, 2017
Here to echo Kaare gustafsson's comment. Climbed this route this weekend and the bolts were spinning pretty good. Especially the bolt to the east. Rapell felt a little dicey. Jun 13, 2016

Both hangers on anchor bolts spin pretty freely. Seemed in fairly well still, but be aware of this. Feb 26, 2016

Being off the main trail and somewhat out-of-view, this climb gets relatively little attention.
Of the eight 5.10a's at Ozone this is easily my favorite one.
