This burly route is the hardest in the center Northern Point area, and is pretty bouldery.
Start below a roof, with two hands on a good edge. From there, burly move after burly move takes you up the arete, to some thin crimps and more burly moves, onto a ledge and an easier trad finish to the anchor.


once down the 5th class downclimb to the cliff, look for the first bolted line on the west side, with 3 bolts above a small roof about 10' off the ground.


3 bolts and optional gear to 2". If you made it to the trad section though, you shouldn't have an issue getting to the anchor.
