Furthest right on this wall. Just before you get to the walk-through crevice to the main wall, this route starts on the outside of the arete and wraps around it to the chains just on the inside. The crevice can be chimneyed on TR after leading this route.


The arete on the left side of the opening of the crevice.


4 bolts to chains.

This route is called The Nose 5.8 in "Locals Guide to Rock Climbs of Northeast California." It looks slightly overhanging and intimidating, but the holds are big and halfway up you can move right onto the arete and rest your arms.

Has a few loose blocks since the last time I was on it, I think I remember one spinner, but nevertheless this route is fun, a nice warm up if you milk it for the stretches , for the inner walls.

fun juggy climb. The rattling jug isn't going anywhere. I moved over to the right side of the arête just above the fourth bolt, not like the topo photo. The inside face felt 10a/b and the chimney is really fun on TR.
