BETA PHOTO: Snowshed Wall - north face, west side.
This route is one of the most dificult trad routes in the Donner area. It is rarely led but is a fun toprope if you are up for the grade. The route follows the incredibly thin seam just left of the ariel arete. An easy start leads to brutal liebacking through very thin crimps and finger locks. The crux comes in the middle when your feet run out and your hand holds shrink. once past the main crux you still have brutal 5.12 liebacking to the top. Good Luck.
This route ascends the thin seam just left of Ariel on the right side of the main wall.
Since the route is a very thin seam you will need alot of small nuts and RP's plus a handful of very small TCU's.
