Description

This is the sheer arete just to the climber's right of Boardwalk and Fire Point. Boulder up to the first bolt, then get established at the good hold on the arete. After clipping the second bolt make the magic happen. After the crux, there's a couple spicy and exposed moves at the top of the arete before you can get some pro. Shouldery, balancy and just flat out hard.

Location

The beautiful arete just to the right of Hindu Kush Direct.

Protection

Mixed. 2 Bolts and a small cam get you to the third bolt just to the left of the Hindu Kush roof. A snack pack of cams and nuts will get you to the top of the cliff.
