This is a great little pitch. Located 40 feet right of Arrow Place, begin in a left-facing corner and climb up passing two bolts (a very loose flake lies between them - belayer beware). Continue up the corner until it is possible to step right into an attractive arching undercling flake. The slab under this flake has good footholds and the flake itself accepts finger-sized gear. At it's end, step up to an anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

Anyone know what the sport route to the left of Arrow Place is? We did it and thought it was fun, just one hard move at the bottom which we thought maybe 10+, afterwards really fun 10- moves on the flake to reach the arete. Shares Anchors with P1 of Arrow Place.
