Description

This is, in my opinion, an excellent route for the grade, despite some hollow rock in the middle portion of the route. It is very steep and will make even the strongest climbers struggle with the impending forearm pump!

Climb past a pin and 3 bolts to a stance. Continue up the arete past gear (including a fixed stainless stopper) and a bolt. Continue up the arete to a bolt/chain anchor.

There is a left variation that is easier and moves left at last bolt to the anchors for "They Might Be Giants".

Location

Climbs the northeast arete of the feature to a chain anchor at the top.

Protection

standard rack up to #2 or 3 camelot
