Follow bolts up the NE arete using good crystals and a few thinker spots. Fun short warm up and can easily set up a TR from Micro-Climb (5.8).

Somewhat overlooked climb in this area. Steep to start to a sweet arĂȘte then right ascending traverse to the anchors. Remember this being fairly runout at the noted, you (if you really want a 2 for 1) can set up a toprope for the chosspile that is Micro Climb.
