Climb up “Arêtetrifying” to the third bolt and put a very long sling on this bolt. Traverse right on rock with lots of lichen using a large flake for foot holds and a horizontal crack for hand holds. Do not put a cam into the crack used for a foothold since it is flexible!

Put a long sling on a small tree growing on a dirt ledge. Then use cams in the wide crack on the right while you make a crux move onto the top of the slab. Use either micro cams and nuts or large (3 – 5”) cams to set up a belay on the ledge. Make 4th class moves down the top of the wall to the two rappel rings and then descend on a single rope.

First ascent: Mark Fletcher and Josh Shifflet, February 18, 2012.

Three bolts, three double length slings, and appropriate cams
