I first thought I was above the line to the right when setting the anchor and preparing to clean. So like a moron, I inadvertently gave the best line to Alexis. This left line however, turned out to be a good route. It starts in a chimney, moves to face climbing before turning the arete and surmounting a head wall. The arete moves are the most challenging.


Descend the chute using the extended fixed line and then head right or north through some sketchy talus for a short distance.


Four QDs for the bolts though you most likely will want to have runners to extend a few clips. I used one BD #1 and #2 as well as a BD .4 (See Topo) There are chains at the top with a quick link.

A fun line with deceptively tricky beta. Be sure to scope this one from ground before starting up it. Anchors also allow the 12++ face to the left to be TRd.
