  • Description 

    The route is the West-most arete on the main rock at Supremacy. It [overhangs] pretty radically and has interesting holds. [The] rock is smooth and glassy. By staying around the corner, on the overhang itself, a worth eliminate goes at 10c. Using the vertical, slab, and overhang (wandering) the [route] is kept to 5.9+. You might find it hard at its grade even then, however.

    Protection 

    There is little good pro. You can work in whatever odd piece here and there, but none of it is much good. On the otherhand, it is possible to set a TR with a ton of webbing and gear, although a TR fall results in a big swing, potentially into the tree behind the route.
