On the arête.


This line follows the curving right edge of the Second Triangle, resulting in a series of fun arete-and-face moves and an aerie feeling. Begin straight up easy, manky terrain to gain a small ledge and the beginning of the arete proper. From there, you'll slap with your right hand and crimp with your left. The "well" is at 3/4 height....


This is on the rightmost edge of the Second Triangle. Begin from the ramp above the Front Triangle. Belayers can sling a large block to the left. Alternately, begin from the anchor at the base of the Third Triangle and angle left to join the route at the third bolt.


8 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

This is a fun route, but it has lots of flaky lichen on it. I did not find a particular crux. The hardest part was avoiding the lichen. If anyone brings a wire brush to clean the route, it would be great.

One can also start this route, missing the first 2 bolts on dirty rock, from the ledge at the bottom of the 3rd Triangle, right at the beginning of the trad route in the dihedral, Bloody Lady Di. One can then rappel from the anchors of If Your Well Runs Dry to the bottom of the climb and the ramp at the right bottom of the 2nd Triangle, avoiding a scary downstep. No handline was in place yesterday.

Hardest thing about this route is finding / cleaning off a place to put your feet.
