Justin high up on 'Are You Small?'

Description 

"The arête" at Squarenail. This is a super fun line with lots of exposure over the corner down to Mr. Wizard.

Location 

Scramble down the broken ledge to the right of "Left Book". There is a belay spot wide enough for the belayer.

Protection 

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchors. Can access anchors for toprope from Left Book. Best for the belayer to sling a boulder to anchor in if the climber slips off prior to 1st bolt.

A little run out to 1st bolt . Bolts when you need them , but not exactly a tightly bolted route . Excellent quality and feature .

The original route had three bolts placed by Terry on lead. It was a fun evening on a beautiful line, but on repeating the route later I felt it needed a couple more...cuz I was scared! Terry was nice enough to let me add a couple cuz he's a nice guy.
One of my favorites...d.

Very cool and technical slab route! Felt my calves burning on this one (but I suck at slab....) The fall before the first bolt would not be great (because you risk your belayer and you falling off the pile of rocks that you're belaying from) but the moves are not too bad. You can TR this from the anchor of left book (what we did).

Beautiful, straightforward friction slab with a great right hand the entire way up. We did this route on TR after leading up Easy Rider. This route can be somewhat grueling when the crag has been baking in the sun all day, so this (as well as all the slab routes here) is one I'd recommend doing early in the day! We had a 60M rope, so we belayed from the ledge left of the arete (about 20ft right of the bottom of Left Book/Easy Rider) and we had maybe 5ft of rope left over.
