Just below the crux. Notice the snaking arete cov...


This is a mostly chill route with a very difficult and pumpy crux. Follows a beautiful obtuse arete into a very cool featured over hanging finish.

Begin up a easy start. Follow ledges to a slightly tricky roof pull. Get established over the roof and get your rest in for the technical crux above. Start up the snaking arete using jugs which quickly turn into pockets. Make a tough clip and figure out the next set of pockets to get to the jug below the next bolt (crux). Pull up onto the ledge and begin to decipher which holds to use through the final overhanging section. Hold off the pump to the anchors.


This is the last route on the wall before you start heading towards the Rival Wall. About 50' left of a large cave like dihedral called Kindred Spirits. Look for the snaking arete feature about midway up with route.


10 bolts to a two bolt anchor. Rappel with a 60m rope.
