If arĂȘte climbing is your thing, you'll love this good route. Strike up the finger crack to the roof, pull over it and follow the arĂȘte through a few airy clips and balancey moves to a committing mantel finish (easier than it looks, but still heady).


Right at the corner where the cliff takes a sharp turn right when walking along the cliff.


6 bolts - Shared anchor with a 5.10c face climb on the left, and a 2 bolt 5.12a squeeze job face climb between the two 5.10s.

I'm glad this got put on to MP as a 5.10c as that's what Tim swore the grade was. With my crappy technique, I always thought is was a bit harder.

I would agree with the 5.10c rating. The hardest part is making that blind 2nd clip!
