Description 

Start up the right side of the arête until a lack of holds forces you to move to the left side (first crux). Continue on and enjoy easier terrain as you approach the big overhang. Pass the roof on the right, then climb the overhanging side-wall back left (2nd crux) until it is possible to pull onto the main wall. Continue on to the anchors.

Since you rappel the route, it's possible to break this route into two pitches, but it's a lot more fun doing it in one!

Location 

Continue past Bow Wave for about 5 minutes, the route will be obvious.

There are two rappel stations so only one 60m rope is required.

Protection 

19 bolts to belay/rappel anchors. Three or four runners are recommended to reduce rope drag.
