Fantastic arete climbing in a quickly reached but hidden, shaded alcove. Clip approximately eleven bolts while navigating both sides of the arete. The left side provides the occasional rest; while the right side provides critical holds through the crux. Bolt spacing increases as the climbing subsides near the top. Finish by trending left to the anchors of Seventh Sojourn.

At one or two points the difficulty can be eased by trending left and brushing up against Seventh Sojourn. I opted for this but the route goes both ways.


Seventh Heaven is located on the north face of Faded Rock. The route is reached by scrambling up the gully between Mean Mister and Faded Rock. Seventh Heaven ascends the prominent arete.


Bolts to the anchors on Seventh Sojourn. These leaver biner equipped anchors were added in 2010. An optional nut can be used to protect the moves to the first bolt.
