This is an excellent face climb between "Pygmy" and "Blue Collar Ape." Start using the arete and crack passing first bolt to a large ramp. Being careful, clip the second bolt around the corner where the face climbing begins. Five bolts total to shunts shared by Blue Collar Ape.

After climbing this fun route, use the top rope to check out a possible new route just to the right.

The location of the last bolt makes it hard to decide how to finish. I traversed left into the crack finish of Blue Collar Ape, my partner went right to the arete and followed it to the top. Either way, except a bit of looseness. The face moves down low are excellent and getting out on the face technical and spicy.

If you're into that kind of foolery you can do a direct start a few feet right of the bolt line in a tips crack. Green C3 and thuggy moves will get you on the ramp. Beware of the prickly stuff.

hmmm, maybe I was tired at this point but I found the crux around the 2nd bolt to be pretty hard for a 10a. Good climbing though - take care clipping the first bolt (awkward) and 2nd bolt (big fall potential).

Super cool rout with great bolt placements and good rock. The crimpy section between the second and fourth bolt is really balancey and the holds are pretty small. Maybe I'm just not that good on crimps but i felt it was pretty stout for a 10a.

Fun route. Dont fall before clipping the second bolt. The face below the route is the fun stuff. I agree w/ Boissal, the ending is non-obvious as it is kind of a squeeze-job between the 5.9 to the left and the 11 to the right. I aimed for the crack finish and my partner clipped the last bolt on the 11a.
