A really fun route, with some hard to figure winding back and forth to find your way up the lower half. Seemed odd to me that Bill worked on this with Jim.
Be very careful at 1st and 2nd clip, ground fall potential.


on the arete right of the Crack in the back, with the clips on the left side as you climb.


6 bolts, and bolted anchor with quickclips.

[Hide Comment] This one has a lot a sting. Definitely was sustained and pumpy. Recommend stick clipping first bolt for safety. Also, it is really hard to reach/see the first 2 bolts when climbing. On the ground, start off far on the right. Move over left to clip the bolts. The right side is so much easier to climb but it's off the bolt line and would make a fall dangerous b/c of the swing. At the 4th bolt there is a stellar right sidepull to rest on. However, there's an even better rest on the ledge on the right! Continue left. Bolts 5 to halfway up past 6th require faster movement on the crimps. Pull up over right side and traversed over left to anchor. Mar 12, 2019
