BETA PHOTO: The wave great climb tricky spot at second bolt


Climb the arete past 2 bolts to the top.


Just left of the large chimney.


Mixed. Take a light rack. There are two directional bolts for pro on the wall. Bolted anchors.

Learned a new way to do this last visit. For some reason I'd always seen folks and tried myself to go left to negotiate passage around/under the bulge over the 2nd bolt, working into a little crack and then picking a path up the face. This time I learned a hidden crimp up and right of the bolt (you've gotta stand up tall to find it) makes it possible to pull a bit right and up, hugging the arete to finish directly overhead. Both paths are of similar difficulty and have a sustained finish but the cruxes are of quite different character. Worth trying both versions.
