Description

A nice bit of exposure on a 5.4 climb to Lower Broadway! The climb hugs the outside (the east face) of a left facing corner right above a pine tree. Feet towards the top slowly become little knubbins on the edge of the arete giving the feeling of stepping on nothing! But the jugs are there and the climb is a ton of fun. Don't get caught in the tree at the beginning... especially if you're carrying a pack.

Location

From the belay station on top of 1st pitch of Kauffman-Cardon's, traverse right, then climb straight up the arete of a left facing corner. Starts just right/outside of the Bee Sting Corner (5.7). End at the lower Broadway Ledge. 50 feet (from the start of the arete). Bolts at the top.

Protection

Protection is small and slightly awkward, but doable. Towards the end the runout becomes more significant but the holds are solid.

There is fine protection on the lower part of the route, and then again before you top out. There is a middle section where there is nothing secure and it is quite exposed. The holds are great, though, and the position is excellent. I don't think the runout reaches the "R" distance, but the impact if you teetered off the arete in the wrong place would be bad.
