Description

Climb the arete with sidepulls and crimps up to the top. There is a very nice rest at half height. It has great climbing the whole way to the top.

Location

Begin from the ledge at the top of The Pleasure Pillar. You can approach via The Pleasure Pillar or the gully to the right. The gully is 5th class and is protectable. At the top of the gully is a short 5.9 corner protectable with gear to 4 inches.

Protection

Bolts.

The exposure is wonderful, and the moves are awesome on some good steep rock. Doing the Pleasure Pillar to access the climb is the way to go. Sets you up at the luxury belay ledge. Sep 6, 2011

The grade is fuzzy, because I am sure that there is some height dependent reaches involved. Be aware. Could be easier and could be harder. Just saying! Sep 6, 2011
