Description

This fun route starts with some great moves that lead on to a blunt arete and some less than stellar rock. Do not despair, the rest of the 75 feet of climbing IS on stellar rock and finishes with the crux. There are two back and forths on the arete but you end up in the middle of the face pulling the 11a move to the anchor. Lots of fun! The second time you are on the right of the arete there is a bit of a reach move for shorter climbers. A left hand NOT obvious side pull can make the difference.

Location

Just north and up hill from "She Jane" the arete forms a small overhang over the trail which is very near to a large Aspen Tree. On the same face and just left is Swinging On Webs.

Protection

Twelve bolts lead to an anchor. Quick draws and some runners for clipping long. The long clips are recommended under the roof, at the roof and just past the roof.
