BETA PHOTO: The obvious arête right of the two parallel crack...


Take your time to enjoy the imagery of this two pitch arête right of Ridge with a View. The first pitch starts with a well-protected traverse right to gain the arête, which is followed for a 100 feet to a belay from gear. Although Viewmaster is a separate line, at one point a reach left allows the use of the bolt on Ridge with a View (consider using a runner). Maybe 5.7, but barely. The second pitch gains and climbs the summit block arête.


Draws, a full-length runner for the bolt on Ridge With a View, and a No. 1 and 2 (red and gold) Camalot for the first pitch belay.

Just curious, isn't a #2 and 3 the gold and blue camalots? Thanks for the new additions to the canyons, I look forward to giving these a go!

Good catch L. Too old. I'll make the change.
