Description

What an incredible line! 4 stars!!

Start on a hard boulder problem which either goes out right to jugs, a small crimp with a heel hook or directly up to a bad finger lock. Pull yourself up and get onto increasingly good holds.

Soon you reach a good midway rest where you can shake out. Take advantage as you may get pumped in the second section.

A slab works up the side until you must traverse back onto the face on a crescent shaped crimp to a big reach OR to bad side pulls. Once you get this, don't fall as you negotiate either a mantle or a hard slab. Lots of variations but a incredible route. Originally graded 11c, I gave it 11+ as the enduro nature makes it a bit harder.

Location

Basically the left edge of the Air Voyage wall. This is the wall with a big boulder that is about 4m away from the climbs and requires scrambling to get to the top climbs

Protection

10 bolts to anchor

Many climbers end up milking the face right of the arete as much as they can, but the slightly harder and MUCH more classic line will stay true to the left side of the arete via big crimps on the steep left face. Soft if you climb right of the arete. Jul 19, 2017
