An interesting climb that will keep your attention the entire way. Mostly face climbing with the occasional use of the arete. Start just next to a rhodo at the base of a blunt arete. Move up and right to a ledge to clip the first bolt. Start moving up the arete and face using mostly crimpers. A few good rests can be had on the right side of the arete. Shake out and fire the last two bolts (crux) using the crimpers and high feet to span to better holds.


Take the trail that branches to the right from the approach trail. Walk up the eroding ramp to the alcove at the base of the trad cracks. To the right you will see a line of bolts next to the blunt arete. Rap with a 60m rope to get down.


QD's for 6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
