Free Radical is the arete right of the line being ...


This route has outstanding moves in a great position. Gain the corner, stem while you can, and then commit to the arete and go for it! The route shares an anchor with Guillotine. For added spice try not to stem down low and finish straight up past the last bolt. If you carry 23 quickdraws you can link this route with Hangman in a single 52 meter pitch.


This is the bolted arĂȘte right of the giant Guillotine corner. It's possible to belay from the ledge at the base of History Book and lower back to the same spot with a single 60 meter rope.


9 bolts. It might be best to clip the bolt above the finger crack before starting up this section. Clipping from the crack is strenuous and could lead to a long, clean fall if you blow it, Please use carabiners on the chains to lower and leave them for the next climber.
