A little TR action.


Once you scramble to the base of the Frighten Wall, an obvious line appears that ascends a striking edge of beautiful alpine granite. Consider bringing mosquito repellant.

Pitch #1: Very technical initial moves climb the granite edge with unique footholds on the left and finger locks on the right. It steepens but nice overlaps allow a few dynamic moves to the two-bolt belay. 5.9+ or 10.a (?), 20m.


Rappel the route.

Obvious crux 1/3 of the way through. Protected by a bolt. Thought it was about 10a
