Description 

Pitch 1 (5.7): The approach pitch to Moment of Zen and Workingman's Arete. Start in a broken corner to a bolt that protects a mini slab. Continue up the corner, to steep section leading to a 2 bolt anchor. Gear: small to #3.
Pitch 2 (11d): From top anchor of A, scramble of to stance, clip first bolt and enter a series of technical, thin moves up the arête to mid way anchor. 10 bolts. 30 m
Pitch 3 (10d): Traverse left off mid way anchor (or continue climbing from pitch 2!) to stance at edge of arête. Gear placements up cracks and face moves on the arête lead to another stance. Clip a bolt, fun arête moves past another bolt lead to a horizontal crack weakness. Small, finger size gear protect thin moves to bolted crux, then traverse right to anchor at top of B. Gear: small to #3. Descent with 60 or 70 m rope.
