What a terrible description for a total classic.

edit- it did have an X rating.

When this route was first put up there was a good hold (10d) at the crux move just below the bolt. That hold has long since dissapeared. Now there are small, sharp edges where the good hold once was giving the route it's rating of 11d. Hard move at the bolt pulling onto the arete, then easier but run out climbing up the arete to a two-bolt anchor.The position of this climb is awesome.
  • Note of caution* There are fragile flakes that are used when trying to get established onto the arete. Please don't pull on these like "no tomorrow", as mentioned they are fragile.
