Description 

From the 2 bolt belay, traverse a thin face for 3 bolts - the traverse gets tougher as you go. Then head up the nice clean arete. Like the traverse, the arete gets progressively harder, with the crux coming on off-vertical thin moves near the top.

Feels rewarding.

Location 

Eclipsed is the right-most climb in the Dihedrals area. It starts about 30' off the deck, at a 2 bolt belay. With a 70m rope you can definitely lower off to flat ground. I'm not sure if you could with a 60m.

Protection 

8(?) 1/4" bolts. To a 2 bolt (3/8") anchor. The bolts appear to be in good shape.

Amazing line & position. Heady bolt spacing on the traverse. Distinct crux at 2nd to last bolt of arete. Holds morning sun longer than most west-side walls.
