Description

Climb through the first two bolts on sketchy mud-covered holds until you are above the water line. From here work your up the arete utilizing a cool rock over onto the left face and some moves through crimps to an awkward roof. From here reach out right to a hold on the arete and bump to a jug. Pull around and up, clip the bolt and one last lock off leads to the anchors. Pretty fun and a good warmup for some of the harder routes around. I gave this route PG-13, because blowing the second clip would end with a climber on the ground and the rock through that section is fragile and covered in old dry mud.

Location

From the slab rope walk climber's left for about 25 yards and it's the obvious right-facing arete. Lower down.

Protection

5 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor.

I have seen two people, both solid 5.12 climbers, fall on this thing between the first and second bolt because of the rock breaking. Be CAREFUL going to the second bolt. If you blow up you will more than likely hit the ground. It could really use another bolt between 1 and 2. Mar 15, 2014
