Description 

A traditional bolted face route with intermittent gear placements. Obviously, there are a few times you are above gear doing the harder moves. Two holes in between the bolts take a #2 camalot and a 0.75 camalot so save these. A little flaky rock detracts from the overall quality but the moves are good and the position is outstanding. the top out is in the brush so prepare to crawl a little to a good ledge to belay on.

Location 

On the lower face of Aegir. While it may be approached between the Neptune/Aegir gully, the traverse is very overgrown (9/10) and coming down from the Aegir/Poseidon gully is much better. Route starts off the ground on a couple left facing flakes and the first bolt is in a strange spot and can be skipped with gear 3' to the left.

Protection 

5 bolts (replaced recently with 3/8 and SS hangers) and small camming units to #2 camalot.
