Walk West around the mesa until the ridge line crumbles away, about 200 yards from the main talus field. Route numbering begins from this West side with the four bolt Suicide Drive (5.9) being # 1. Material Issue takes the colorful arete 30 ft right of Suicide Drive. It's a small thing with a technical arete move between bolts 3 and 4. I thought it was a kick and a nice problem, if only it were 100 ft longer.


QD only. This 40 ft route needs only 5 draws and something for the anchor at the top.
