The clean arete to the left of Life During Wartime. Begin up the face and make a thin traverse over to the arete which will lead to a stance beneath a small roof/overlap. Here you will encounter the crux, a brief but powerful sequence lacking any good footholds. Above, easier climbing up the face and arete leads to the anchors.

This route shares the same anchor with Mildew Encrusted Shower Stall (the wide crack around the corner to the left), Life During Wartime (the crack up the face to the right), and One Armed Bandit (the dihedral further right).


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/lower
