Description 

Climbs nice dihedrals with an exciting and airy finish on the arete above Not on a Weak Day.

P1. 5.10d/11a. Boulder up and left from the base of the Not on a Weak Day offwidth past a bolt. Tenuously lieback past two more bolts then up a dihedral. Ascend another dihedral to a stance below the upper overhangs. Clip a bolt, step up on to the face, then move right to the arete. With hands on the arete and feet on the overhanging right face, pass two more bolts on the way to the bolted anchors (left of the Not on a Weak Day anchors).

Location 

Climb the arete on the left side of the gash above Totem Tower just left of Not on a Weak Day. See the photo.

Approaches:
1) Climb Levitation or one of the other central slab routes, then scramble up to the base of the route.
2) Climb Spare Rib, and continue past the anchors up to the base of the route.
3) Walk left around the west end of Main Crag. Head up to the base of the cliff then angle up and right following cairns in a trough. Scramble up behind Totem Tower and up to the base of the route.

Protection 

Six bolts and a light rack to 2.5 inches.
