BETA PHOTO: This thing is better (and steeper) than it looks.

This is a fun hard line (for me) that starts off a bit grungy but finishes up an excellent steep dihedral on bomber quartzite. With closely spaced bolts it is safe and worth a go for the grade.

Start slightly left of the arete 20 feet up. Move up the easy/chossy face past some gear and towards the arete. Climb it past 2 bolts (10ish) to a ledge below the steep dihedral. Note: One could climb the face to the left also, but the arete is cool. Move up a few feet to get a #1 tcu that protects the move to the 3-bolt line above. Some powerful climbing on small holds gets you to better holds and a surprisingly pumpy finish. Lower from anchor at the top.


Rightmost line of the 4 on this wall (the 2 middle lines are projects still).


Light rack for grungy start, then #1 tcu half way up.
