Tim on the first ascent of blue steel arête , jod...


This climbs the obvious sharp arête to the left of two bit whore. Fun balancy moves up the arête to anchor. Watch for a little loose block about half way up. Tried to get it out many times!


This is the right hand of two obvious orange arête so that can be seen from the road. Single rope rappel.


Mixed gear and bolts. Gear up to #2 camalot
