Description

Layback up the arete just right of Senior Citizens. The crux for many is just below a small overlap. Even though the bolts are all on the right side of the arete on the bottom 2/3 of the route, one may find it easier to sometimes climb on the left side.

Even when many other routes are wet, this one may be dry.

Location

Start just right of Senior Citizens in Space.

Protection

All bolts.

Climbing to the left as you approach the overlap works but be aware that falling before you make that clip will send you hurtling into the wall of the dihedral behind you. At 5'1", I found this to be a difficult clip to reach. For those wanting to mitigate this risk, climbing Senior Citizens first and pre-hanging an extended draw at that spot allows you to make the clip from a safer position. I am by no means solid at the grade so your mileage may vary.

I thought this climb was excellent and interesting throughout. Sep 2, 2013

If you're worried about falling off before the first bolt there's a 0.5 (BD) placement that will protect you nicely to the first bolt. Jul 20, 2015

I really enjoyed this route once i worked out all the beta, the first time up was quite hard. I think i find a new "hold" every time lol. Jun 19, 2016

Soft slippers help. It was infinitely easier in a pair of dragos than well worn katana laces. Jun 26, 2018
