Description

The prominent and narrow arête that points to the southwest towards the northern side of this area. Just to the right of "In Alignment" and starts about 20-30 ft to the right. Climb the lower crest of this arête through easy ground protecting with gear. Clip the first bolt as the gear thins and the climbing gets more challenging. Stay on the arête crest to maintain the exposure and the grade. Clip 3 more bolts and protect with solid gear through the steeper crux section. Easier ground with good gear leads to the anchors. Recommended to belay from here rather than top-rope. Easy access to "Heaven" via a ledge 3 meters below the anchors.

Location

Also down a "level" from the main staging area of this area and about 20-30 ft to the right of "In Alignment."

Protection

4 bolts and a collection of small-medium cams, with a #2 or 3 for the top section.
