Plug a couple of cams in a 3" crack almost directly under the arête, and belay. Carefully traverse left to the South side and the first bolt. Place a small cam after the first bolt. Clip bolts the rest of the way, with an optional hidden small cam (blue Metolius) possible near the top to reduce the run-out (5.9) to the two-bolt anchor. The arête, half way up, can be climbed either directly on the arête or on the face to the left, the left being a little harder.


A crack almost directly under the arete.


Bolts, small, medium and large cams with a few wires. Runners to reduce drag.

Steve, if you have any pictures of the location of these routes in the Eden area that would be helpful, I think I was on Garden of Eden but I'm not sure. There sure is a lot of different people bolting up near the Narrows lately.
