Julie at the crux of Laser Beam 5.8


This arete is the farthest left route on the cliff. Some slopey holds down low lead up to a face/arete. The crux of the climb for most seems to be route I won't spoil the fun with details.


8 bolts to lower off

A nice climb that remains fairly constant all the way up. A good intro to the area.

ill spoil the details only because. some one leading in the 5.8. range climbing this thing at the crux... and has trouble route finding at the top could posiible hit the outcropping ledge below on a nasty pendulem..(beta) after the crux slab stay left on the arete the holds are their clip the last bolt. dont go to the right around the arete it looks easier and is. but your reach out left ..scetchy to clip the last bolt thats about 10 feet from the last...10x2 +3 equals you hit the ledge...stay left..

Interesting route and, as noted, with no beta there is a nice route-finding challenge. Not recommended for 5.8 leaders, though - the runout to the last bolt is too much at that level.
