DescriptionPitch one: climb the blocky face to the right of the arete. Pull a hard move or two on less than inspiring rock (make sure your belayer wears a helmet!), and climb up to easier holds. Head up and right to the chains and a good belay ledge.
Pitch two: this is the fun pitch. Make sure you go to the RIGHT bolt line and not the one directly above the belay like I did wondering why the hell this is so hard for an 11a. Go up a flake system on small but positive crimps. This has great exposure, the second pitch makes up for the first one.
Remember - if you climb directly above the belay, you are now on the second pitch of Mish Mast, 11d, also fun!
These two pitches can be linked.
LocationThis is the first route on the left when looking at the main face of The Sail. The Poudre guidebook says you can rap down from the top on a 60m.
