Description

One of the best Arêtes around. The Bodhisattva is the most obvious, inspiring, proudest, line that exists at Old Castle. The whole route is pretty sustained and steep, starting out at 5.10 and continually getting more difficult toward the top around 11b.
The crux comes at the last sequence as you crank off the hold Dubbed "The Shark Tooth", to a grim V6 Move to Jugs. Blow it here on lead and you will take the 30 footer of your life, as your last good pro is a solid 15 feet below you. :)

Location

The Bodhisattva Arête is the large blunt arête that makes up the left skyline of the main wall. Start in either bird shit covered chimney, fun 5.7. Even better overhanging bulge just left of bird shit chimney start, 10a, to small triangular stance. Now Dyno sideways 10 feet clearing chimney gap to arête!!! Climb left side of arête to obvious right facing arch. Here it becomes possible to obtain the boulder problem head-wall finish and last place for gear!!!

Protection

Gear to 3 inches. Bolted anchor.
