Sweet Nothings ascends a left-leaning hand crack (about 5.6) to a slabby arete. The arete is easier if you stem out to the wall behind. There is a bolted anchor.


It is inside Corridor 1.


Mostly hand sized pieces (#0.75 to 2) and a couple of small wires for the section before the arete.


Excellent but short handcrack. The last half of this route is unprotected and possibly warrants an R rating. Falling from just before the anchors will put you out of sight 30 feet down into a chasm. Oct 19, 2015

I opted to just chimney the last section, rather than climb the unprotected arete! Feb 22, 2016

The arete can be protected with micronuts. You can take your sweet time placing them too, because you will be standing on a small ledge and leaning against the slabby arete. Definitely the way to finish this line. Jul 25, 2016

I also chose to do the chimney (awesome finish). There is zero protection, but the feet are good, and the chimney is no harder than 5.6. Super adventurous, great route! Jun 4, 2017

The chimney is a very fun way to end this climb. Jun 4, 2017

Fun, perfect, hand crack. The path of least resistance up top is the chimney, which is quite enjoyable. There is no protection in the chimney, which I'd say is the "hardest" part of the route, so it warrants an R rating. Even though the chimney is runout and a slip would be devastating, it's not anything to worry about. Aug 3, 2017
