Climbs the nice looking arete on the left side of the formation. The business starts low with an nice under-cling to reach and clip the first bolt. A few technical moves get you through the crux and the climbing eases once past the third bolt.


4 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

4 bolts. Going left from the undercling at the bottom is more challenging but does not follow the natural line. Also possible to stay right of the 3rd bolt to ease the crux. Of note, its possible to climb past the anchors over the arete to the right to the easy finish on the 10b/c if you don't climb at that grade but would like to set up a toprope. You'll pass one bolt before the next set of anchors.
