Description 

This is a beautiful, airy line up the center of one of the best sections of rock at the V. Envisioned by Jesse Moorehouse and with a pile of bolts generously donated to the cause by Mat DeGraaf, the first arete at V Rock was bolted.

There is a little bit of everything on this mega-pitch: slab, arete, dihedral, techy and big moves, no hands rests, and a crux right up at the top. Rests punctuate the climbing keeping it less sustained than it might appear from the ground. Generally well-protected but not dull, this shares chains with the amazing finger crack, Almost Certain.

Protection 

16 bolts, chains. A 70m rope is REQUIRED.
