Loess starts on an obvious horizontal rail and uses opposing edges and the arête to gain the buldge. I used a whacky arm-bar the first time I climbed this and thought it was definitely 5.11. Kevin hopped on the top rope, figured out the beta in about three seconds, downgraded the climb and said I was a wimp. Make someone buy you a beer if you can find the arm-bar!


Loess is the arete flanked by two crack climbs, just left of the Stone Wave.


5 bolts to quick clip anchor.

A surprisingly tricky first three bolts lead to a rewarding finish
