Description Suggest change

Step off the rock shelf platform onto the arete and climb the 5.8 Suits and Boots skipping the ring anchor to clip the 6th bolt instead. Negotiate a tricky 5.12 section to reach two decent pockets and the 7th bolt. Climb straight up into the gray rock and the scoop to find a great stem over to a giant knife blade feature. Milk this rest then work the stem a couple moves until you are forced to leave it and commit to the steep face. A dynamic move is well protected but the belayer must be attentive because the rock wall behind you is close. One more strenuous sequence is rewarded with enormous jugs to clip the anchor. This route is one of the best I've ever bolted. A must do!!!

Location Suggest change

The right arete on the Cobra Pillar winding up the inside back of the feature.

Protection Suggest change

11 bolts and a sporty clip and lower anchor
