This is a mixed route, with the first half being gear and significantly easier than the second half. The movement on this route is incredibly esthetic, on really cool holds.
Climb to the bottom of a 3' roof and get a 1.5" cam on a long runner in a deep slot under the roof. Pull right around the roof and climb 30' of fun climbing to a perch on the edge of the arete. Enter the business and climb through two technical overhangs and the crux before the anchors.
Note: If the climber falls in the crux above the forth bolt, they should be allowed to fall on a touch of slack to avoid being whipped into the ledge out right.
This route climbs the right side of the arete at the base of the cliff.
You can either walk straight up to this climb from the trail, just before it loops around the arete or from the base of Decievious, walk down and around the base of the arete to a small clearing.
