A two-pitch climb with chains at 50 and 110 feet. It can be done in a single pitch with a 70-meter rope. The climb starts with the crux overhang (5.11a) letting off past the second bolt and up to easier climbing. A couple of good overhanging sections with a fun variety of climbing that comes with taller climbs. A recommended route.


This climb is located to the right of Little Arete and to the left of The Spire. Located in the middle right side of Jungle Gym Area.


13 bolts, chains at 50 feet, and chains at 110 feet. This is a climb where you definitely want to clip stick the first bolt!

The variety of climbing on this rout makes it a must. Careful not to kick anything down after the chains before you start climbing the 'second' pitch and as stated above don't forget your 70m.
