Start off a boulder and onto the rounded arete passing three bolts along the way as you balance your way to the top, cutting right to a bolted anchor shared with Goldfinger.


Located on the far left arete of the formation and just left of Goldfinger, a striking thin crack in a corner.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8")

I believe this climb is more like 5.10b......maybe a 5.10a/b rating would be better?......(or just 5.10-)....

Perhaps 5.8+ is a more accurate rating?
