This route is not on the arĂȘte, it is just right of the bolted corner Bush Fire (5.10c) - whose bolts have been removed. Many people avoid the low crux by stepping left into the wide crack to the left of the first few bolts. The real route goes straight up where the bolts are and is pretty hard for 12c.


Park at the Chapel and walk toward the cliff. Follow the trail to Bridalveil Falls for 50 yards or so. Take an obvious footpath to the left when the cliff almost reaches the trail. When you reach the cliff, follow the trail left passing Heathenistic Pursuit and the large fallen chuck of granite that has formed its own pinnacle. The path diminishes here but continue left (east) past a rock fall section and up a sandy slope. Ninety-six begins up an arete just before a left (east) facing corner with a bolted crack.

The bolts on this route are a good candidate for replacement. 6 out of 8 of them are rusty spinning 5/16" buttonheads. Oct 5, 2015
I believe "96 degrees in the shade" goes up the steep face right of the corner called "bush fire" 5.10c (the bolts have been removed) and left of the arete that you climbed. There are 2 lines on the arete, one on the left and one on the right. The one on the right is called "pink panther" 5.11b. Don't know what the left one is - Eric Gabel Oct 25, 2012
