Description [Suggest Change]

On the left side of the arete is a single large boulder against the wall. Start on this boulder and follow the bolt line up the obvious seam and then onto a long pumpy headwall. There is a runout between bolt 4 and 5 that can be protected by a 3' cam.

Location [Suggest Change]

Route on the left side of the arete which follows the obvious dark crack seam.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Sport with one 3' cam between bolt 4 and 5.

Is the upper part of this the same as "The Joy of Cooking" 11 ish or is this a different line? Joy... was always one if my favorites at Cooks and I plan to add it to the database soon. Thanks! Dec 20, 2017
Nathan, This is actually an independent line that rides up the left inside of the arete and finishes near the top of the buttress. There is a route to the left of it called Hunger Games that is an 11+/12- that shares the same finish as Joy. Dec 20, 2017
