Getting established on the overhanging arete of Ts...


Wow, what a pitch!

Climb the prow (5.10) to a position below the overhanging arete near the top. Slap up the arete (crux) to a fixed anchor. The key word is slap; it helps to tape the first and second segments of the fingers on the left hand, as that arete is coarse.

Some people skip the last bolt, as it's really hard to clip it mid crux. If you can't manage the crux, you can always pull on this bolt and bypass the crux.

This is a good route to project on cold days, as it gets fully sun.

There's a fantastic photo spot on the ledges on the left side of the gully.


Walk left under the Main Face to the left side, then up into a gully. The overhanging, orange prow is on the right side of the gully.
