P1: 4 bolts in slab lead to an anchor at the base of a right leaning crack.
P2: Mostly hand sized crack to broken features on the left lead to an anchor.


Located on slab ~100 left of the start of Three Hour Arete. Old anchors were found at the top of the second pitch. I spent many days cleaning the crack and bolted a more enjoyable start.

I was on 3 Hour Arete and looking at this route. How long is the 2nd pitch rap. Will a 70 m rope work ? It looked long.

Hey James! It's two raps from the top anchor. 1, 70m rope will work
