BETA PHOTO: The route.


Starts from the same ledge where If Pleides Could Dance and French Lace start from; this ledge is reached with a 40' 5.4ish scramble, either from the right or up the obvious dihedral on the left.

Begin just left of Pleides, and pull diagonally left off of the ledge on steep, solid orange rock (crux). Once the arete is met, follow the left side of it until the obvious horizontal crack, cut right onto the arete proper, and follow this into a thin crack to the upper ledge. Good climbing, but there is some hollow rock and lichen. Done on-sight, ground-up, so not much cleaning was done.


Starts just left of If Pleides Could Dance, on the right side of the south face of Blackline Buttress.


Double set of stoppers and cams, cordalette or long slings for upper anchor. Small tree and marginal gear anchor on big upper ledge. Walk off to the east.
