Description:

Left most bolted route before the arete. Easy 5.7 start, first bolt cut, so it's unprotected for about 20 feet.

4 out of 5 stars no gear, no problem

Because the first bolt is cut, it is suggested that you place a piece of pro in the first hoizontal crack available. Otherwise, free solo until you can clip (20 ft, 5.7, no problem even for moderate climbers). To keep it easy, stay near the arete and then traverse left along the granite outcropping, then left up the gap in the bulge to the top.

A great warm up because it's easy to get to if you drive up to the Tombstone, and you can literally belay from the front seat of your truck (we have pictures to prove it).
