Comments: This is a fun little route, there are plenty of holds all the way up, but they get sharp up at the top and it is slightly overhung. I added a PG13 because there could be some consequences if you fall while clipping the 2nd bolt, there is a decent .5 X4 placement between these bolts if you want to protect it. Looks like the top bolt was recently replaced.

Comments: If you follow the arete up it stays pretty easy in the 5.6 range, once you start moving further left away from the arete is when the difficulty starts to jump up a little bit.

Comments: The 2nd bolt on this route was a little loose, I hand tightened it, but it will need to be tightened more.
