Working up Naked Edge


This climb is on the south east side and is the rightmost bolted line on the face. It starts up a nice finger crack. Climb crack up and past the first two bolts where a bit of face climbing leads to a third bolt. From there, slap the right arete to the top and a 2 bolt anchor.


Southeast side of the Wedge, the rightmost route.


Three bolts, two-bolt anchor rap on top.
Couple cams up to 1/2" might be desired getting up to the first bolt.

Good route. First bolt is high, but the crack leading up to it is pretty solid, I didn't place any gear. Middle bolt is manky looking. Really fun.

The finger crack in the beginning is awesome, I just wish it went all the way up. It's fun to do as a boulder problem to the end of the crack.
