Just to the right of the arete, begin with a fun little double dyno to get off the ground (very easy but fun.) From there make some face moves on small holds and work your way up to some cool underclings and blocky features (unfortunately, a few of these features wobble a bit). Continue on thin face moves to the top. Needs more traffic or a brush to clean up all the lichen and spiderwebs.


Four feet right of Evolution


Top-rope anchor is not straightforward on this one if you want the anchor exactly above the climb. Using some cracks at the top of Death Scream (the actual face) may be helpful.

Top-roping recommended, but as always it may be possible to lead if you're determined.
