Description

This is a nice little powerful trad climb. The crux is at the start. A 5'5" climber can reach the jug; from there an easy campus move to the next hold jutting out on the right, or straight up on to the horizontal crack a little higher. That will let you stand on the jug you started with. Place a pro either in the horizontal crack (micro cam) or the vertical crack a little higher. From there on it is an easy climb, about 5.7-5.8, along the arete. Slightly easier if you take the face to the right of the arete.

Feel free to suggest grade revision; may feel harder for heavier climbers.

While the route is short and nice and a good one to learn trad leading, the fall at the start (which is the only place anyone can realistically fall on this route) can still be pretty ugly since the base itself is about 8-10 feet above ground.

Location

See map; you can reach this by hiking around the Left Hill from either side. The start of the climb is on a 6 foot tall boulder amid vegetation; we didn't attempt to approach is from the base. Rather, we hiked to the top of the boulder, rapped off and climbed up.

Protection

Trad gear, about 3 pieces. Boulders/cracks to the top to set up top-rope anchor.

Use the same anchor for Bheem's Arete TR, with an extension
