Description

This is a fun, thin line that follows the left face of an arete @ 45' above the slope. The route begins on some broken ground, approximately 70' right of the old mine shaft. Work up to a sloped ledge and carefully clip the first high bolt. Work thin face moves to a slot/crack where the climbin eases to a set of chain anchors up and right on a sloping prow.

Location

This lies above and left of The Quill. Hike up the shitty, steep slope to an old open mine shaft and look over right to spy the bolts on a clean face, just below the arete.

Protection

4 bolts, cams from 0.3 to #2 Camalots.
