    6 bolts up the nose of this prominent fin. Easy, thrilling moves. About as fun as sport climbing can get.

    On 1-16-2009 my son red pointed and I seconded. This is a nice climb. One of the bolts is a little difficult to find as it is on the right side of the arete and the rest are on the left side. The bolts look fairly new and are in good shape. There are short chains at the top. I think the 5.9 rating is reasonable.

    Great route with some fun moves and cool features. P.S. Thank you to whoever stashed my lost phone by the cairn! I drove out today to search for it before it got rained on.

    After the fourth bolt you'll have to come round the edge of the face. I call the sensation as leaving the womb. I treally just opens up and really interesting once you are around the corner.

    Great line with gym-like moves. Beautiful at the top
