This route ascends the arete above "one for the road"(oftr). Begin to the left of oftr scramble to ledge then up to a flake (a piece of protection may ease any anxiety) then follow bolts (5) up to ledge. Belay at tree/boulder. Descent same for oftr (walk off).


Left of "one for the road"


3/4 camalot before the first bolt is nice, five bolts, tree at top.

Nice route too bad some ass stole the hangers. No worries just sling the bolts with nut wires and climb on.

Large beehive near the base of this route as of May 15, 2016. It is slightly uphill and left, but the scouts may find you before you see the hive itself.
