Description

The start is probably the crux on this one. Climb up just on the left side of the arete passing 3 bolts along the way. Little bit of a mantle move over the last bulge by the anchor. Straightforward.

Location

Far right side/arete of the main right face of the upper crust.

Protection

3 bolts and two bolt anchor.

Glad I'm not the only one that though so. That mantle is about 5-6 feet above the last bolt once you've committed, so as the wise man once said, "Don't fall!" Jan 13, 2015
It seems like part of the boulder problem right before the anchor has broken off. VERY committing move to the anchor for 5.5 climbers. I suck at climbing so I'll TR it next time. Jan 12, 2015
