Inchworm Arete


Starts above the anchors for "New Kids on The Block." Climb about 10 feet through some brush to the first bolt. Runout, a little, but if you were able to get to the starting ledge its probably within your abilities. Then its up the arete with lots exposure past two bolts to a stand up rest. There's loose rocks at the rest so tread carefully. Finish past one bolt over a small bulge to the anchors.


Starts above New Kids on the Block. Second pitch above the rightmost line on the wall.


4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with 1 chain and a rap ring.

Fun moves, but major rope drag if doing it from the bottom of New Kids. I suspect there'd be lot's of rope drag if doing it in two pitches as well since the bolts zig-zag around.
