Description

Loess starts on an obvious horizontal rail and uses opposing edges and the arĂȘte to gain the buldge. I used a whacky arm-bar the first time I climbed this and thought it was definitely 5.11. Kevin hopped on the top rope, figured out the beta in about three seconds, downgraded the climb and said I was a wimp. Make someone buy you a beer if you can find the arm-bar!

Location

Loess is the arete flanked by two crack climbs, just left of the Stone Wave.

Protection

5 bolts to quick clip anchor.

A surprisingly tricky first three bolts lead to a rewarding finish Aug 8, 2014

Great vertical hold between 1st and 2nd bolt. Thank god that little knob fits a toe. From the 2nd bolt use friction feet and slopers until your in 4th class. Jun 23, 2018
