The current route is different from what it originally was. When cleaning The Broadcast it was discovered that two microwave sized blocks were loose at the roof. After lifting them off, the route is now a bit different.

New Beta: Start at the base of the arete and climb The Broadcast to the roof. At the roof, make a move or two towards the teardrop-shaped flake on your right. At the hollow teardrop flake, follow the seams that trend up and right to some easier rock where you can then gradually climb towards the anchor.

Old Route Beta: [Startin at the bottom of the Pyuk Butress, climb a small, left-facing corner to the bottom of a large roof with a strange hanging (teardrop shaped) flake. Climb up over the flake, through a thin seam to the top where you can build a gear anchor to bring your second up.]


It starts at the base of the Pyuk Butress. You can scramble up past the pillar to get to a small traverse ledge that will take you to the bottom of the route.


A standard rack will do, be ready to extend a lot of the gear as it's fairly spread out as you're going over the roof.
