Start on the ledge and climb up the steep arete with fun moves to a two bolt anchor.


This is one of the first routes encounter after the approach. It is the second route from the left side of the wall.

Doesn't see the traffic it deserves. 5 star climbing to the 5th bolt with a stellar crux sequence. Hard to onsight for sure. Don't miss this one!

Be careful with what you grab up at the anchors - I grabbed a seemingly benign hold a foot left of the chains and ended up throwing a football-sized chunk of rock at my belayer. Climb safe!

Fantastic route. Reachy pocket pulling in the bottom half is top notch.
