This is an intricate route, completely different in character than the others on the DC boulder. Start out by climbing the arete for a move or two to gain the slabby face. From here, climb up moving left, then right, finding a sequence to link good holds on a thin face. Above the 4th bolt, you'll hit the crux. You can go straight up or go a bit left then up to reach the 5th bolt. After this, make use of the slanting crack to reach the 6th bolt and shuts. This climb is much better than it appears! It would greatly benefit from more traffic to keep it clean. Certainly worth doing, especially since it stays in the shade all day in the summer.


This is the first route that you will see as you approach the DC boulder. Just to the left of Angle of Attack, 5.12c arete.


6 bolts, shuts
