Description

Start up the easy (5.6) wide chimney, takes a 6" piece or stick clip the first bolt.
Move right and make hard moves getting on to the arete proper. Dance up the arete with a few more tricky moves to anchor.

A perfect arete climb on bomber rock.

Location

Starts up the chimney then arete on the north east face of Dinka Tower.

Protection

6" cam or stick clip first bolt.
Then all bolts.

Spectacular arete climbing with way more exposure than the height of the route warrants! You might get frustrated at the lichen which re-invaded the crux sloping hold. Give this one a little wire-brush love on the way down. Jul 28, 2014

A thin, airy, and exposed line that rewards the person hanging their butt out there with great photo opp.s! Impressive FA! Oct 4, 2013
