Description

This route still has some flakey rock around the second bolt, but should continue to clean up nicely. The upper arete is great steep climbing.

Start on large huecos and head straight up, before reaching the overhanging wall above move left into a scoop near the blunt arete. Climb up into the scoop and clip a bolt just below a ledge. Find the good holds on the ledge and mantle. Climb the steep arete on good pockets and a horizontal. Move right to mantle onto the ledge where the anchor is located.

Location

On the left side of the scooped out section at the right end of the Pogue's Cave area.

Protection

5 bolts to anchors.

Careful with the top out. Showered belayer with rocks, establishing on anchor ledge. Very top and bottom 3 bolts are still cleaning up. Fun arĂȘte in the middle Jun 11, 2017
