Take the slabby face (crux) to the bolt 20 feet up. This leads to a nice finger crack that fits a blue TCU, then the route steepens as the holds get bigger. Clip a second bolt, stay close to the arete on your left and balance your way up to a two bolt anchor on a ledge with a tree


Right of Comatose, right of Praying Mantis/ Beeline and the 5.8X route with the aluminum hanger up high, 15 feet left of Resurrection locate a bolt 20 feet up a slab to the right of a gully


Small Tcu's, up to 2", 2 bolts, bolted anchor, the route is 150 feet but you can rap to the gully with one rope

Fun route with minimal gear. Testy/heady to the first bolt if you take a direct line. Easier climbing above to a small cam high in the crack; lower the rock is suspect. More fun climbing to and above a couple more small pieces. The climbing to the second bolt is outstanding, fun, easy, and quite run out. Instead of finishing up the arete, we finished at the Resurrection Ramp anchor. Dec 28, 2014

Pretty sure this is named "Arete Ride" in the guidebook. 5.8

I didn't really like it. The rock down low has significant growth, and a crumbly weird "kitty litter" feel. Awkward high fist bolt that is too far right. I had a BAD BAD time trying to get up into the crack on the bulge. Got stuck way above my last piece, in a nasty little position. Awful, insecure slabby climbing with horrible gear. It was practically an epic for me. I fought through it and pulled the move, but it was sketchy and not fun or aesthetic at all.

I think the better line is Ressurection Ramp, unfortunately. Sorry Sean/Mike, I know you worked hard to develop this area! I just wanted to give my impression of for future climbers to read. Jul 15, 2016
