Description

If Prime Climb is getting bland, add a little spice. British Airways Is a harder, more exposed finish to that popular route. Really fun moves on an amazing feature that ends about 100 ft off the ground.

A long reach will help you gain the arete then some technical foot work and picking the right holds out of the highly featured rock will help you make your way. Save a little juice for the last few feet where the holds get small and the sequence more tricky.

Like many of the routes in this area it is often wet :(

Location

Start on Prime Climb then break left at the hanging block at about 2/3 height to climb a striking arete.

Protection

The book says 13 bolts. I brought more than that (15 I think) and I ran out, having nothing for the anchor. Bring 17 I'd say including the anchor.
