Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Hand and finger cracks that wind around the arete to the right of cold comfort.

Traverse right on easy edges to the right of cold comfort and lust. Gain the finger to thin-hand crack and continue upwards to a comfortable, sandy ledge on the west face of the arete.

Lieback thin cracks and flakes up a dihedral off the ledge, then traverse left and up to the shared anchor with cold comfort.

A fun route that seems overshadowed by its proximity to cold comfort and supervalue.

Two bolts protect a slab variation off the ledge which feels more like solid 5.10.


Standard rack of cams and nuts, focusing on small fingers to thin hands. I managed to place a #3 camalot in a pod near the top but you probably don't need anything bigger than #1
