Description 

If you hike up to that offwidth you might as well climb this too. Nice arete climbing on good rock with a fun mantle or two and lots of nice palming and red granite arete jug hauling.

Location 

It's the arete between the pine tree and the offwidth.

Protection 

5 draws, .75 Camalot, maybe a yellow TCU, chains.
