Description

This is a fun short crack which is mostly finger-sized. You use both finger locks and layback moves. You can top rope it after climbing Sunlight Arete if you did not bring gear. I only gave it one star because of its location. It is difficult to get to and not worth doing as a destination climb.

Location

This route is a few feet to the right of the Sunlight Arete route. You start in the same place as the belay bolt for Sunlight Arete whose top anchor you use to descend.

Protection

Gear to 2 inches in size. Mostly cams. Use the bolt anchors on Sunlight Arete at the top.

The route has cleaned up well enough, I guess. The initial placement is pretty high if you eschew the bolts down low for a trad route.... Then lots of gear but slightly flaky rock in a few spots. Not unsafe by any means. Sep 17, 2016

A few really fun moves but mostly choss climbing to get to the route, worth doing if you're in the area. Oct 2, 2014
