The crux is passing the first bolt. Place a piece before stepping up to clip the bolt. Falling down the gully and dragging off your belayer would be unfortunate.

The Hidden Treasures East guidebook incorrectly lists 2 bolts. There is only one, right at the start and on the arete proper.


The farthest right route, up the hill on on the (climbers) right arete. Obvious first bolt to protect the opening moves around the arete and onto the face.


Gear to 3". Natural anchor at top (very long sling for a block or several cracks to choose from.
