Description

Starts just right of the rock bench. Climb up the slab to the smaller arch, follow right until you are directly under the upside down Y shaped crack. Pull yourself over the bulge, and continue through the upside down Y crack on jugs. Shortly follow flakes left and then continue right following bolts up the slab to the anchors shared with The Scam and Tango Arete.

Rappel from anchors with 70 meter rope, or traverse left to Whine and Cheese anchors where a 60m rope will just barely touch the ground.

Location

Just right of the rock bench, in the Whine and Cheese area. Underneath the upside down Y shaped crack on the dominate arch.

Protection

Trad with 3 bolts.

The start felt pretty run-out on this one. The climbing through this section wasn't terribly hard, but non-trivial. The rest of the pitch was very well protected and fun. A wide array of climbing styles encountered here.

Thanks for the beta photo showing the line. It's not too obvious. Aug 17, 2016
