Sling one of the many horns on the ledge at the base of climb for belayer. Climb directly up from your belayer following the two bolts seen down low. Merge towards right side of the arete on positive holds to a steep bulge. Crux is pulling the bulge. Follow low angle crimps to another steep face for the top out. Single rope (70m) rap off North side will just barely get you to the ground.


Route is located on the North West arete of formation. Start at the base of Lander Turkey Shoot and look left. Walk/stem up a thin gully til you reach the base of the arete on a ledge. From here you will be able to see two bolts.


2 Bolts, Set of small nuts
