Climb up the blocky slab past two bolts (long slings here) towards the steep prow/arete above. Tackle the arete via the line of weakness, occasionally climbing different sides of the arete. Many holds appear loose, but are surprisingly solid. That said, I'd still tread with caution.


7 bolts, 3 bolt chain anchor.

Been climbing this one for years. Go for it, the holds are solid!

This is more defined by cruxes and also a more "heady" lead for the aspiring 5.10 climber. It climbs well and is on quality rock for the HWY. It is not quite as stitched up as the other .10s on the cliff.
