Capital Outlay climbs the aesthetic bulging arete.


Capital Outlay climbs a beautiful, cream arete on good edges and nice pockets. Although the arete is guarded by a rather savage crux to clear the low belly, the upper prow is fairly sustained in itself, making for a fully-engaging outing.

Stick clip the first bolt, then teeter up precarious choss to reach a steep swell of flawless stone. Make a big crank from an obvious mono to reach better pockets. Invisible feet make it difficult to mount the slab, then follow good but spaced pockets up the right side of the arete, occasionally groping around to the left for the odd hidden edge.


This is directly behind the east corner of The Borg Boulder, at the far west end of the GBN cliff line.


~7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.
