Aaron's Hot Venom Injection Arete

5.9+, Sport, Alpine, 100 ft,  Avg: 3.6 from 25 votes
FA: Aaron Summers, Blake Summers, Anthony Russo
Utah > Uinta Mountains > Bald Mountain > Cobrazone
Access Issue: Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Description

(AHVI Arete) This is the one that drew us in. Mega fun, instant exposure, arĂȘte climbing, jug haul, double crux, very well protected, happy good fun times to chains on top of the Cobra.

Location

It is recommended that you ascend AHVI Arete and lower off Caging the Cobra to avoid potential rope drag. Knot the ends...duh, always.

Protection

10 or 11 bolts to chains. The route shares anchors with Caging the Cobra and Charming the Choss' second pitch.

[Hide Comment] Best 9 in the Uintas! Aug 11, 2017
[Hide Comment] maybe would be the best route in the world if it went on for another 1,000 feet. Feels harder than it is for the awesome exposure, and cause it tilts back a bit at times. But, possibly only 5.8+. Shares anchors with left route so can TR either or. Very well/safely bolted, so if you're a 5.9 leader then don't get scared by the appearance. What a gem! Recommend runner on 1st bolt. Jul 18, 2018
