Bolts Are Failing! MORE INFO >>>


Find the vegetated weakness on the north-facing wall. Scramble up the right side of this to a bushy ledge. Pull a few easy moves over questionable rock to a stance below an overhang. Plug a cam in the slot then crux it over this. At the stance above, find small pro then step left and pull jugs into the groove. Amazing features, with one flexing flake, leads up a slight but juggy overhang to a really cool perch next to some detached but solid chunks. Scramble up a bit further to set a gear anchor, then lower yourself down so you can belay your second while you watch them climb. Descend by walking left (east) to the rappel anchors on Long Arete.


Middle of the north face of Discipline Area


Gear to 1.5" and one 3" piece for the crux
