Climb a blank less than vertical arete, clipping the first bolt. Transition right and rest at a small ledge, clipping the second and third bolts. Use a series of micro features to overcome the crux and clip the forth bolt. Ascend easier, moss covered terrain to the anchor.

As someone who enjoys delicate near-vertical climbing I found this route enjoyable. The first half features challenging climbing divided by a full recovery rest. The last half of the route is forgettable.


This route is located between 420 and Captain Disco.


Approximately 7 bolts, the 4th of which is fixed, and an anchor.
