Description

A challenging start on the arete that continues up the face, trending right away from the arete to the finish.

Originally projected in summer 2011. We had hoped to bolt the climb before posting it but at this point it'd be nice to have more people climb it even as a top rope.

Location

This is a face climb on a pillar that you pass when going towards the Hollow. from the opposite side of this climb, near Two Hands of Prayer, you can easy climb up this pillar to set a top rope.

Protection

You can sling two boulders on top and also find some cracks, though you may need to clean the cracks out. We used a couple of tri-cams and slung boulder for our anchor.

Kyle is wrongggg (I think). If memory holds true Aaron onsight soloed the same line you are describing. And yeah I did face around the arete to the left but I think it was much easier and definitely not the 5.11 you've listed. Oh and I think that was 2 years ago. Jul 13, 2015

Thanks for the input Josh.
Kyle, there are a couple of ways you could finish this climb but we thought the truest line goes up and slightly right, around where that small crack is on the top. Ill show you sometime. Josh and I also projected some other stuff on this tower but it needs to be cleaned and developed more. Glad to hear you and some others are looking at it too. Soloing some of these climbs is awesome/brave. Apr 12, 2014
Nice work Stephen. Jack and Aaron were messing around and Aaron soloed the right side of the arete where you seemed to start this climb. However, he ended up traversing left and eventually topped out around the corner. Not sure how you ended up taking this line. Youll have to show me sometime, The face to the left of this arete was also soloed by jack. Could be TR'd as well. Apr 10, 2014

Fun route, but it is short. Definitely a one move wonder. Could be led with the proper cajones, but the gear is post crux and the landing is sloped something nasty. It'd be worth two or three bolts, but other routes deserve the hardware more. Apr 8, 2014
