Description

Toward the left side of the Moosehead area. Start is the same as A Kind Gesture. Start in the obvious under cling crack that starts on the left and moves up and right. Once making a few moves in the under cling head straight up towards the bolt. Keep going up along the arete and slab towards a large flake higher up. You will pass a piton at the flake on your way to the bolted anchors at the top.

You can set this up as a TR by hiking up the steep trail on the left side of the crag to the anchors.

Location

Left side of the Moosehead area.

Protection

Standard rack, one bolt, one piton, bolted anchors

I thought this was a fun climb with a variety of moves, really straightforward beta. Fine line indeed, if only it went for another 100. Nov 25, 2015

As of 7/27/2016, this is no longer the left-most route at this location. There appears to be some new development/bolt placement to the climbers left of the arete. Jul 28, 2016
