This route starts just right of Opiate and climbs the right arete of the main pillar directly from the bottom, joining with Clip Art at the fourth bolt.

Climb an overhanging right-facing flake to it's end and then bust out left (crux) to a distant edge. Note: this section is somewhat reachy and those without the necessary wingspan will likely find this section to be more difficult than stated. Once past the crux and established on the arete proper, climb engaging moves past three bolts on impeccable stone to a stance below the final two bolts, and then head up and left along the slightly overhung arete (5.10) to shared anchors with Clip Art.


Found between Opiate and Clip Art on the main pillar.


8 bolts, 2 bolt lower-off

A good route with a distinct crux. The finishing arete is excellent - if you don't want to do the hard start move right to Clip Art, and enjoy the finish.

Did not feel like 5.12 to me, (maybe because I'm short and was able to get a high right foot), but definitely a great crux with a fun (10-) arete finish.

A fun route, the crux was more like .11b/c. Enjoy!!

Without route beta, this would be a very difficult onsight. Took a while to figure out the big move left (the crux move). The arete above is simply excellent rock and great movement. Definitely recommend.
