Description Suggest change

This route climbs the blunt, white arete between The Slab and Crimes of Passion. Climb about 40 feet up The Slab, then make a delicate step right (5.10 R) up to a shelf. Smear, palm, and bear-hug your way up the "arete" past six bolts (well-protected 5.12b) up to a crack (1.5-inch CD) that diagonals right to the 2-bolt anchor shared with Crimes of Passion.

For a less harrowing start, you can climb Crimes of Passion Direct Start (5.10) for three bolts, then move left to the first bolt on Point Blank (9 bolts total).

Rappel 110 feet. (70 meter rope required)
