This was a very good route; great rock on the east side of the arete.

Nice, much harder start to the Virus. Climbs slightly overhanging rock up four bolts with edges, crimps and some sweet ringlocks. Don't even bother with the first bolt.

Great Climb! I wish it kept going straight up the arete and didn't move right.

It moves right of the arête and shares the last few bolts and anchors with The Virus.
