Description:

A stellar 10a, the crux comes at the first bolt where you have to mantle over a roof, a very strenuous move. It stays challenging after the crux. VALYGRL's edits: crux is not the mantle, but the thin section above.

5 out of 5 stars Sick Mantle

Fun route, first bolt is a bit far but you can clip before the mantle crux at the first bolt

5 out of 5 stars Get ready for the mantle

After the mantle, the climb is balancy and thin, but it is average for a 10a. Really fun mantle move.

4 out of 5 stars well-protected

clip the first bolt to the right with a shoulder sling, then clip the mantle, second bolt. After you pull the mantle and clip the "third" bolt, reach down and unclip the second bolt (yes, they're that close) to avoid drag.

Also - stay to the right along the arete for the easiest climbing after the mantle.

3 out of 5 stars strenuous to balancy

That stupendous mantle is very well protected by a bolt. Lots of fun. The top rope allows you to try the very difficult route to the right.
