This tough, fun sport climb ascends an arete from the bowels of a slot up into full view of the people taking the stairs to the lookout. It's a pretty cool position, fairly protected but a little runout towards the top when the difficulty subsides. The sequences are not obvious but if you need to work it the bolts are in good spots.


Go left of the start of the stairs down between the main rock and a detached tower. Where the rock on the left makes a corner and there's a giant boulder to stand on you're at the start. Climb the arete up and take the stairs back down.
