Beautiful skyline!

Description 

This route takes the obvious arete from the very toe of the formation to the top. The crux comes low on the route, just above the first bolt as you get established in the crack/groove out left. Continue up solid flakes and overlaps staying slight right, taking advantage of natural protection where available. Two bolts protect the steeper climbing towards the top, gear anchor with medium to large cams. Walk off down the long gully on the climber's left of the formation or rappel from the one bolt anchor of Layback and Relax.

Location 

The route is an obvious natural line up the formation which starts at the lowest part of the rock and travels up and right, staying on or near the arete at all times.

Protection 

Doubles to 0.75", single 1-3". Slings for extending pieces and three draws for clipping bolts.
