This shares the first 20 feet of Comb the Desert!. From the dihedral, you go left onto the face for some hard moves that leave you to the arete and some ledgy terrain. Gain the upper section on big but steep holds up the arete. 3/4 of the way up, get a good rest and finish the route on some thin balancy moves to the large ledge and the same anchors as Comb the Desert. Good pumpy route! To decrease rope drag, you may want to extend some of the draws lower on the route. A 70m rope gets you to the broken ledge and some down climbing. Two ropes are better!


Use the same start as Comb the Desert!


One small piece (0.3 Camalot) and about 12 quickdraws.
