After clipping the first bolt, make a technical move up to a stance on the arete where you can clip the second bolt.

The 3rd bolt can be reached direct (harder) or via a slight left / right move. After the clipping the third bolt continue quickly up the groove.

At the fourth bolt, you are past the difficulties and should trend left up the face to the anchors.


Shallow corner in the middle of the North Face


7 bolts, chain anchors

Another great climb of the area with technical footwork down low, fun moves in the middle and a better than expected finish. Although there are easier lines nearby this is probably the best warm-up of the area and will help get you in tune with the (surprisingly) slick rock.

All the old bolts on this have been replaced, as well as lots and lots of loose rock. Hats off to KP and Henny for their vision to see a great climb here.
