Giddy up!


A fun climb up the bolted arete (basically the first climb you come to on the approach). The climbing is similar to the routes on at the Feathers area, except the holds seem much less likely to fall off when you pull on them.


Quickdraws, bolted anchor.

FIRST ASCENT: Kevin Pogue, Jason Prinster, april 1993. I climbed this back in 93 and had no idea it was a brand new route. It is a cool route.
