Description 

Follow the bolts on the SW arete for four pitches (max 100'). Beautiful climbing on clean quartzite! Climb the S face on gear to make a great day.

Protection 

Fixed stations and entirely bolt protected. Bring 12-14 qd's. Rap with a single rope (you may need to clip the rappel rope back in on the 3rd rappel).

This route is heaps of fun and safely bolted! The exposure and quality of moves and rock is truly awesome.

Amazing route. Really one of the best sport multi-pitches around.
