This is a five bolt sport route climbing the arete.

This is one of the most memorable routes I've ever done. The first few moves lead off the deck out into space with A LOT of air under your feet. From then on is a beautiful arete with thought-provoking moves and even a few surprises. An instant classic. Don't forget to have your belayer anchor in, or they could be going for a ride!

Between bolt 5 and 6 there's a large, backpack sized rock that could possibly be dislodged with enough force. The outcome would likely be very nasty for the climber if it did come loose while climbing. Be very careful if/when cranking on it. It's without a doubt the best hold to use through that section.

Nesting Eagles:
As I clipped the chains two or three eagles began screeching and dive bombing me. They were nesting about 15 ft up and south of the chains. They aren't directly in your path, in fact they are pretty far off the path, but it sure seems they don't love you up there.

So my buddy and I were up there yesterday and the nesting falcons were still up there by the chains. They were really aggressive, dive bombing my buddy and then backing off when they were just a few feet away. Still one of the best routes in Ogden, but beware the falcons!

If raptors are not climb! This will create access issues for both the birds and the climbers.
