The most popular climb at Alias Wall. A really fun arete.

Begin 10ft right of Corndog Crack at the line of bolts up the arête. Climb the toe of the arête up to the left rising ramp. Surmount the ledge and utilize a no hands rest before pulling the small roof sequence to gain the slab above.

6 bolts and an optional #2 cam in the runout 5.4 section at the top.


A good pitch! Bring a trail saw and clean up some of the branches that are in the way. A bit run out at the top. Easy, but I can't imagine the fall you would take if some of those holds broke off up near the anchors!!! Jul 30, 2014
A very nice pitch! The easy runout at the top could be protected with a yellow Mastercam or a yellow Camalot if desired. The climbing is maybe 5.5 in this section so I wouldn't be overly concerned if you don't have a rack with you.

While the route itself is thoughtfully bolted, the anchor had only two quick- links (as of 8.10) and their orientation made the pull on rappel a real rope twister. We left two carabiners there to reorient the rope and eliminate this problem. They are not booty!

Thanks to the FA team for a nice addition to the area. Aug 11, 2014

Fun line! Actual 10c sport that's not a sand bag @ upper. Aug 30, 2014

Hey Derek,

I appreciate the biners left at the top. We meant to get back there and add chains or something since the rope drag/twist is pretty bad but we didn't have the equipment at the time. I'm sure they definitely help! Sep 16, 2014
