This is the 'arete' climb on the fin of rock between Long Wall and The Blade. It has probably been done before perhaps by a different name. It is somewhat reminiscent of the Three Graces route in Garden of the Gods but not as high in quality. Nonetheless, it may be worth a romp for the adventuresome.

The start of the climb is close to Your Possible Pasts, near a tree. The crux moves are close to the ground. You can loop a horn with a sling. Near the crest, you can use a longer than 48" sling to get some probably psychological pro. Continue past a break (#3 Camalot) to the far end of the rib.

0.76 stars, rounds to 1 ;)


Light rack to #3 Camalot, 2 longs slings (48" plus).
