    I think this is actually the route Say Goodnight Dick. What's Up Doc? is to the left of the arete.

    Super fun route with nice hand jams, worth climbing if you are there! I'm not sure I would put it at 5.9, more like 5.8. Don't let the R scare you for the lead, possibility of big falls but not too spooky.

    Extension helps if your TR'ing from the bolts.
