Description

Start in the once dirty, low right corner on the right side of the pillar where it meets the wall. Move up and left through the face to attain the arete, then prepare to get needled.

Location

Walking the main trail towards the maze at the end of the Far Side, you will pass an obvious, large, detached pillar to the left of Mardi Gras and Lord of the Warlocks. Contemplate taking this route home with you.

Protection

5 bolts + a 2 point anchor with steel rap rings.

Be cozy at the grade, because the exposure and bolting can be heady. One can biff and deck on the tree/ledge to start out, and traversing to the anchors is unnecessarily tenuous. Methinks it would be much cooler to start up Facing the Animal, climb this awesome arete, and end up on the Facing's anchors instead. Oct 22, 2018 · Lost & Found
