Description 

Sharpen your claws for this tricky overhanging arete which features excellent rock and positioning. Were this twice as tall it would be a classic but it's still a worthy endeavor in a unique setting. Three stars out of five.

The rap anchor is a little funky and may still include an ancient fixed hex as part of the set-up.

Location 

Right side of the north face.

Protection 

5 bolts (all 3/8")
