This climbs the arete that arises out of the water.


2 anchors atop. I top-roped so no beta on leading. Not a lot of pro though.

Mocked this thing today, will lead it next time. 1 medium cam in a hole 10 feet off the ground, a brass a few feet higher, and sketchy blue zero Wild Country near the top. Don't fall.

I feel guilty claiming an onsight lead for this route - I protected it using the new Mr Potato Head bolts that are for the most part in easy reach from this route.

The route, as mentioned, now sports 5 closely spaced bolts. Still very fun. No longer even close to R.

Great Route R it was more like X pretty much a tope rope route. The adition of the bolts makes it a great lead.

And clipping those bolts means you haven't climbed said great route. Nice work.
