Description

From the Fixed Pin description: start to the right of a black streak about 25' feet to the left of Fairwell To Arms (FTA is the right-trending ramp to a bolt). Climb up the ramp, and pull onto the face, not much pro. Clip a bolt while pulling through the bulge (crux), and then head up a lower angled slab along the ridge, aiming for a left-angling crack at the second bulge. Actually, after the crux, the terrain is pretty much open season without any change in difficulty, pick whatever line you like, but the crack does provide a little more pro. Belay on gear about 5' below the top of the wall/ramp.

To descend, step right across a scree filled gully, and rap the Farewell To Arms anchors (2 beefy bolts), and it is about a 200' rappel.

Location

This is left of "Farewell To Arms" and right of "The Sun Also Rises". Note that the Fixed Pin guide is oriented R to L and front to back, makes reading a little confusing.

Protection

1 bolt and gear to #1 Camalot.
