  • Description 

    You'll be feeling thankful if you finish this route without having to test any of the numerous questionable gear placements. Climb the fun arete on the left edge of the column with little gear until you can move right halfway up and climb over the blocks in the middle of the column. The arete offers fun exposure but this pitch is largely marred by the fact that there are little protection options and those that do exist are in fairly low quality or hollow sounding rock that isn't too inspiring.


    Starts about 25ft right of "Come and Get Your Love" on the 10ft wide east facing column. Get established on the middle of the column, then traverse left and move up the arete. Topout and hike left around a boulder and rap from the anchor of "Come and Get Your Love"


    Single cams (no larger than a #3), medium nuts, and 2-3 slings for subtle "horn" edges on the arete
