Bryan moving around the little arete.


A fun and challenging moderate, with some interesting moves due to the fact that it traverses almost continuously rather than going straight up. Starting on a vertical face, follow the line of bolts up and to the right. The rock steepens to a slightly overhanging and often wet finish.


So What area, right of So What.


6 bolts, bolted anchors.

I would perhaps not climb this as am introduction to the grade. It is no joke for a 5.9... With a lot more fall consequences than most due to its traversing nature

Very fun and good route, good hand holds and good feet. Even was able yo climb it with the top out being soaking wet. However, it should be noted that your rope rubs a pretty significant amount on the rock.
