This entertaining short addition has a puzzling pumpt one move crux preceded by and followed by fun and mild movement. Excellent Rock quality.

Pitch#1: Start at belay bolt located at the very base of the spur where the landing is quite uneven. Once on the rock, climb the blunt arete past 6 bolts to the two-bolt belay. 5.11, 16m.


Find the Basque Arete on the far left (west) of the wall. A very distinct and clean albeit brief spur of rock 15m to the left and below the start of Lucy and Almaz (Diamond).


QDs for 6 Stainless Steel 10mm bolts. Generous Protection.
