Description

Chunky arete, but the rock is decent, with ledges and plenty of rest to 2 bolt anchor. Crux is at the top. Note that this feature was originally climbed ground up by AMH by ascending the broken crack system to the left. Poor rock quality and lame climbing led DAS to develop the arete and put in this far superior line.

Location

On the next buttress to the right of Talon's Grip buttress. Bolt line marks the route.

Protection

Sport, 8 bolts.

Fun adventure to get to the top of the formation - it's worth topping out for the views. Mar 7, 2014
