Really fun route, watch for rope drag, as you move to the right quite a bit.

Start left of the arete, as you move up, move right to the arete. Then up through a little bit of a corner, then a really short traverse to the anchors.


About 20 to 30 feet right of Brief Case, route starts right before the arete and small alcove where Humble Pie is located.


Gear to rappel rings. Nuts, hexes, or cams from 0.3 up to a 2, whatever you prefer to use, lots of options. Anchors are shared with Humble Pie

Cool route, although VERY chossy on the last third. Made placing pro tough, and the climb a bit runout and scary. Climbed more like a 5.9 to me.
