This route ascends an incredible knife-edged arete. The crux is at the start above the first bolt, and there's another hard move at the top.

There's a directional bolt at the top, and a rappel anchor on a tree set back from the edge.


From the base of the main Typhoon Wall, walk left and up a dead-end gully at the left end of the cliff. Tsunami Slap-Up (5.12b) is the prominent arete on the right side of the gully. Go up the gully and break left up a rock step onto a terrace. Walk 40' left to this knife-edge arete. There is a deep full-length chimney just to the right.


Bolts plus an optional yellow Alien.
