  • Description 

    Real fun face Climb! a bald patch left of a purple splotch midwall is the crux (arete off)... tons of variations to make this easier.

    Location 

    Right of Sugarloaf Arete, start below large purple splotch on the middle of the wall and work up and left, passing on left side of purple splotch (not using the arete) and then back slightly right as you climb over the little roof... scramble the last section and then there is a trail down to the left of the wall

    Protection 

    Top rope preferred as there are very few cracks but trad is possible, small pro
