[Hide Comment] We did a hybrid route here called Tree Fort that started on Canadian Bridge and joined the arĂȘte (wimped out) up high.

[Hide Comment] I did the same the first time. Without the arete, it was a weird almost mantle-like move on a crap hold to gain the top. I did some strange hand-foot matching too. Apr 15, 2014

[Hide Comment] This climb was great - techy and the definition of a slab. Had to clean off the face due to lichen and plant grown on the slab, and it was my first time doing so. I never knew how much work went into establishing a climb and after this problem, I have gotten a glimpse into the world of route establishment. Jun 10, 2020
