This has really nice arete and face climbing. The first crux is at the 4th bolt, and a second crux is just before hitting the anchors. There is good rock and fun movement on the face and arete.


This pitch is on the North face of the rock and starts just left of Fire on the Mountain. The first bolt is on the right side of the arete, and then you switch to the left side.

There is a mid-point anchor at 50 or 60 feet or continue to the top via Sonata. A 60m will barely make it down from the top anchor. Tie a knot in the end of your rope!


It is fully bolted, although you can extend this into a long pitch by continuing up the upper arete of Sonata. To do this, bring a #0.3 and 0.4 size BD Camalots.

There are two ways to get to the anchor. The easier way moves right onto Fire On The Mountain for more moderate terrain & reaches back left to the anchor. For full value & a crux finish, climb the smooth slab directly up the right side of the arete (.11c/d) past the last bolt. I thought the lower crux at the 3rd bolt was .11c.
