Climb Warm Up
for about 10' or so and then cut right to the amazing arete. Subtle yet taxing moves up the arete lead to a technical crux just before the last bolt, after which it's a cruise to the top.
This is a great climb that requires good footwork and balance...cooler temps don't hurt either. It's possible to climb the arete on either side, but I found it easier to move to the right side after the first bolt and then cut back onto the left side just below the last bolt.
3 bolts, anchors (all 3/8"), a few pieces to 3" for the start

As of my last visit (1/07), I could only locate two bolts on this route.

The first bolt is on the right side of the arete. The second and third bolts are on the left side of the arete.
