Description

Start standing, perched on the small boulder at the base with your left hand on a small hidden pocket (just left of the arete) at around 5-6 feet and your right hand on a good flat edge at 8 feet. A good hold above leads to a committing crux sequence gaining the lip and avoiding dabbing on a boulder to the left.

This has really good rock quality and movement, but the boulder at left is annoying and the landing could be better. Still, it is a worthwhile line and a good moderate option for those looking to climb on this wall.

I also did this from a slightly lower start with my left hand in the same place, but my right in a small pocket 5 feet right of the arete (at the same level). It felt pretty much the same difficulty, but I liked the above start better.

Location

This climb is located on the left arete when looking at the boulder.

Protection

Three or four pads and a spotter would be ideal.

Just cleaned this route up the other day, so it's all chalked up and ready to go for anyone that wants to hop on it. I really have no idea on the grade. Easier than Karma in my opinion, but the commitment factor makes it difficult to pinpoint the grade. Definitely share your opinion if you climb it so we can get a consensus. May 14, 2018
