Description

An arete climb listed in other sources but not on mountain project. Worth doing if on Wind Wall and working on lower moderates. Fairly direct. Credit for this route goes to Jimmy Porter, Eric Fazio-Rhicard, and Mike griffis in 1990. Thanks for a good lower moderate in this area.

Location

West/Southwest Arete pointing at Wind Wall

Protection

6 bolts to chains

Probably not a priority on Mt Lemmon, but the first bolt(hanger) on this route was hit by a rock falling from the road and has been flattened. Along side this first bolt is another first bolt(hanger) that was destroyed and left in the rock. Sep 24, 2017
Also pretty sure that we were on this route. 3 bolts/chains. SQL 3 calls it 5.10-. It did seem harder than the nearby 5.9s. Dec 12, 2016

A little confused. Hopped on a route this weekend on a tower between Wind Wall and New Wave Wall (which would be Indigo Tower, right?) which followed the arete facing the Wind Wall. Sounds a lot like this route, but I'm about 99.99% sure that there were only 3 bolts to chains even though the description says 6. Are we missing something? Jun 2, 2016
