Heading toward the arete, Emily past the lone bolt...


The crux of this route comes right off the ground with a mantle move to start. After this move left out of the chimney past one bolt and continue up discontinuous cracks and face to a ledge on the left side of a big roof. Traverse right from the ledge on low angle rock past one bolt to the arete. This traverse is technically easy but takes a cool head as you are traversing just above the lip of that big roof. Follow the arete to the top and enjoy the view.


This route is on the Southwest end of Beaver wall about 30 feet left of Stems and Seeds. The descent is a walk off so this can be done with one 60 meter rope.


Gear up to 3 inches will be helpful. There is a bolt near the bottom and one more up high protecting the traverse. Two bolt anchor on top.

Fun route. A really great route to climb during sunset. A buddy of mine followed me up the route, and had to stop to admire the sunset and twinkling light of Tucson below. Wouldn't recommend this route to someone breaking into leading 5.7.

mantle move at the start was hard and dangerous. not recommended for anyone new to trad.

that being said...
