Description

Ascends the Southeast arĂȘte of the large Boulder that sits between the left and right ribs of Sven Tower 3.

Location

Midway between the right and left rib on the lower tier of the tower. The climb ascends the left arĂȘte with a traverse across the top of the boulder to reach the next level climb(Spinal Nerve).

Protection

Three bolts with gear options available to get to the first bolt--as needed. There is a newish anchor at the top with rap rings.

Really fun lead. Lowering the first bolt, added a degree of confidence to my 64" stature. The bolt spacing kept the climb interesting but very secure. A #2 Link Cam protected the traverse to get to the first bolt but is optional. Feb 14, 2016
