This striking arete was originally a Mark Rolofson project, but was freed by Tommy Caldwell in the summer of 1996. Easily visible from CO Highway 7, this route begs to be climbed. However, due to a (mild) hike and some impossibly thin foot, and finger work, this route has seen less than half a dozen redpoints.

Begin the climb with a strange and difficult series of moves bending left over the lowest point of the arete (13a/b). Follow with ~40 feet of very enjoyable moderate climbing to a hard (12d) move sequence over a small roof. Finish the route with a ~10 move (13+) puzzle on small grips and invisible feet. Classic.


11 QD, 2 bolt anchor. Could use some very small gear for the first 20 feet of choss.
