This is a super fun arete climb high over the Warm Up Wall. Climb Welcome to the Gorge 5.9+ to reach the start of this route.

From the belay, Pulp Friction heads up left past two bolts and face climbs past a small roof, then up and right to a narrow arete past 7 more bolts to the top. Great moves, position and protection.

Climbing on either side of the arete seemed about the same difficulty to us.


9 bolts to a bolted rap anchor. With a single 60 meter rope, lower back to Welcome to the Gorge's rappel anchor and do a single rope rappel from there to the ground.
