Description [Edit]

Apneic ascends a blunt, overhanging arete that finishes up a dihedral slab. The formation is unique for the canyon, the rock quality is outstanding, and the landing is very good.

Stand start with a left hand sidepull and a right hand sidepull with a thumb-catch at the arete, each are about five feet off the ground. From there, slap the right hand up the arete, then bump that same hand again to a tooth on the arete (crux), gain the jugs, work the feet up high and negotiate the remaining dihedral slab (tree branches are off) to reach the topout.

Location [Edit]

This ascends the northeast arete of Megalomania Block.

Protection [Edit]

A few pads will do, the landing is very good, but there is a large tree just right of the arete that may come into play during an ascent.
