Really fun route. I liked it better than Zoe as the challenges are a little more sustained and interesting. Staple scars are still quite bad though, bit of a shame. Climb up the dihedral right of Zoe for 4m, branch left to a tech corner and then above to steeper terrain.


New bolt line directly right of Zoe.


Seven bolts

I found the crux to be the slick glacier polish up high. To make this more interesting, do the first 2 bolts of Zoe, and finish on this route, which is a nice natural line anyways.

Saw a gal take a really bad fall on this between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. She fell about 30' and hit the slab to the right and fractured her skull. It did not appear to be belayer error but a result of run-out between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. It appeared she was trying to clip the 3rd bolt when she fell. Watch out.

If you bring a sling, you can easily sling the tree stump between bolts 2 and 3.
