Thin face climbing and side pulls around an arete. The crux is located just past a bulge after a good rest. The moves aren't as hard as figuring out where to go.


This climbs the arete uphill from Crossbow.


7 bolts.

This route is pretty thin. The holds are not obvious, so it definitely requires some figuring out. It's relatively easy, maybe 5.10a with literally one hard 5.11 crux. The bolts are also a bit far apart at the top, so the crux fall will be a bit long, but it's also a really safe fall, so go for it.
