Description 

The opening moves lead to an encounter with the goat's head horn. This route follows the left side of the arete and features great edges, mutated crystals and some really wild wind sculpted holds. The crux is near the top but there tends to be cruxes at all ten bolts. No one move wonder! A beautiful route... not recommended for Crimp-Pansies.

Location 

Rightmost bolted route (arete) on the Iron Face. Walk around to the Northeast side of the Hornet's Nest and find the flat brown face.

Protection 

Ten Bolts & Chain Anchor
