This arete was bolted on lead and does have some enjoyable movement for the first 9 clips. The crux comes at the end with a traverse to the left and the anchors. The guidebook says that it is 12a if you are short, but I found it very difficult being tall. There are poor feet with polished rock. The bolts are closely spaced, so you could swing over to the adjacent crack if you can't figure out the moves.

There is a mix of interesting hangers on this route, but overall it is a safe lead.


The bolted arete to the right of Deli Express...


10-11 bolts

Easy to set up a top rope from Man without a planet or while rapping down after climbing Deli Express. Fun and mostly easier climbing with a crux at the last 2 bolts. Well bolted and the bolts appeared to be in good condition. Most look like they have been replaced somewhat recently. Blue guidebook reports the name as "Loss of Enthusiasm" Sep 3, 2017
