Description Suggest change

This is a gorgeous arete sitting on top of Ridge 2. Begin from a sit with your left hand on an undercling pocket and your right hand on a sloping corner at the same height. Pull on, and make some punchy right hand slaps, and then follow the arete using laybacks, pinches, pockets, and holds in the crack up and left over the adjacent boulder to a delicate and slightly spicy but not too hard topout. This is a really full value line with flowing movement on comfortable holds with just enough spice to be engaging.

The landing is tiered, so pad placement is not the most ideal, but you can always step off onto the rock if you want to bail which is nice. We did it with 1 big pad down low and 1 small pad for the topout.

There is 100% a potential to finish this directly up the arete, although that would be considerably more spicy.

Location Suggest change

This obvious boulder (GPS coordinates 39.979132, -105.291773) rests on top Ridge 2 and can be accessed either by climbing Enchanted Devil (or any other route on the formation) or by scrambling up the downclimb around the back (GPS coordinates 39.979070, -105.291972). 

Protection Suggest change

2-3 pads.
