This route starts on top of a rock at the highest point on the rock. This is the easiest bolted way to the top of the rock.

Climb up the initial one move wonder bulge to the first bolt, and then head up the slabby arete to the top bolts. The first move is intimidating, but not hard.

Kinda ho-hum, but it gets you to the top to set up a top rope.


3 bolts to a 3 bolt top anchor. To set up a top rope, climb the route and rappell back down using long slings and beaners as directionals.

This climb is only a 5 because of the first move. Otherwise it might be a 4.6.

This is the bolted version of the "Solo Arete" the first ascent was by free solo and is the normal up down route for setting the tr on the north side. the original solo started at the base of the west side and climbed up to gain the arete at about the second bolt.
