Description

Work up the lower-angled starting portion of the arete using a thin seam to gain the left side of a sloping ledge and the first bolt then glide up the steep arete above using a combination of balance and power. It eases off midway but the bolt spacing is a little further towards the top.

Originally done as a toprope problem it was later bolted by visiting climbers - mountainproject.com/v/the-r….

Location

This is the northwest arete of the formation, just left of The Red Obelisk (aka Boogers on a Lampshade).

Protection

3 bolts, anchors (all 3/8")
