Description 

Some loose rock near the bottom, cool moves reaching the arete.

Location 

The third route left (for now) of the Afterburner Wall. Start in a short corner, make a hard move to reach (High) the first bolt. Move through a loose section and reach the arete. Continue straight up the arete moving a little left then back right. The quality of the rock improves greatly on the arete proper.

Great climb with good protection.

Protection 

Eleven clips plus a two bolt anchor.
