Description

This has a good position on a prominent arete. The high first bolt can be easily attained by stepping onto the arete from the slab to the left.

Location

It is the obvious line on the arete between Cat Piss slab and the gully behind Top Rope Spire.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Super fun climb! The last bolt before the anchors is hard to see when you're on the wall, so it looks like you're in for a 20 foot run-out (which isn't super uncommon in the Springs!). Just keep following the arĂȘte with great feet and good hands, and you will see it as you round the bulge. May 17, 2017

WOW!!! I went over to Company Wall this morning looking for a quick couple climbs before work (usually go to The Garden, but the rains yesterday kept me away). I have never done any of these, but I have to say this is one of the most fun lines I have climbed here in Cheyenne Canyon. The 5.9 climbing is all between bolt 2 and 4, and the rest of it is 5.7/5.8. If you are looking for a quick, single pitch climb, I highly recommend this route. Jul 12, 2017

While that "high first bolt" was the original first bolt when Brian did the FA, to the best of my memory the original line nevertheless went up the slab on the left, then stepped right to the ledge, to clip the first bolt. Once Lee put up his route to the left, we naturally started clipping his first bolt when climbing the arete. While we toproped the arete starting from the ground (and also top-roped the face to the right of the arete), we never led the entire arete right off the ground, due to chossy rock. 4 days ago
