Tough but short

This route starts up the gully east of Callitwhatyouplease. Scramble up the gully, until you reach a flake system just before the arete. Climb up into this flake system, stand on a horn, and clip the bolt. Make an amazing move onto a chickenhead, and then continue up easier grooves, past one more bolt, and then across a very easy but slightly runout face. The last bolt can be easily clipped from this face and then figure out the tough moves past this bolt on an exfoliating arete. The rock quality here sucks (evidence of the popularity of this route) but given the right sequence the steep secion can be climbed tenuously. Then run it up to Callitwhatyouplease's anchors. This route has 2 distinct cruxes, both are well worth it.


Anchors for Callitwhatyouplease, plus 3 bolts on route.

Great route... Did not agree with the report of poor rock quality on the upper arete section. The rock on this entire route was totally clean a week or so ago.

Awesome route, bring your arete skills. A deftly placed number seven hb offset will keep you out of the shrubage should you blow it going to the second bolt. Not for pansies.
