Climb the garbage "Welcome to the Jungle" (sketchy 5.8) past four bolts to its 2-bolt anchor. Move right from that anchor along the vegetated ledge just around the corner of the arete. There are two low bolts here to anchor on for Son Volt. Climb up the arete, mostly direct but in some places to the right of it. Sustained, hard 5.10 climbing and relatively difficult for the grade. Rock seems to be mostly solid, but watch for smaller loose pieces and crumbles. There is quite a bit of lichen too. It's a fun climb but would be better with more traffic and cleaning.
Right side of Kiliak Wall. Starts from the vegetated ledge accessed by climbing "Welcome to the Jungle."
