Description:

Absolutely fantastic route. Stellor rock, amazing scenery, and killer crack climbing make this an all-time classic. First pitch is 5.10 fingers to and easier flake. 2nd pitch is the business and one of the best cracks you will ever do. Climb the beautiful splitter that goes up the arete starting with thinhands and widening to cups then narrowing back down to thinhands. Hang out of the upper ledge, savour your send and enjoy the amazing view. Two double rope raps from fixed stations. Administrators, please make this area its own section.

Descent Options:

Easily rap with a single 70meter rope

5 out of 5 stars Really good

Both pitches are rad. If you like to sew it up, take triples in BD .75-2. We walked off, but rapping with a 70m would be a better option.

5 out of 5 stars 11b hand crack... What?

This climb is amazing. Never thought a hand crack could be 11b till i climbed this. No single move is that hard but the pump just builds. The style changes right before you fall out... keep pumpin. The two pitches are amazing and the view is spectacular. Rapped the route with a single 70 meter, off super nice new shiny bolts.

5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Fell my way up this route. The first pitch wasn't so bad, but the second kicked my ass. Absolutely stellar climbing. I look forward to being strong enough to lead this clean.

Mark lead the 10d pitch and I lead the 11b. A great accomplishment for me at the time. I cannot say enough about how awesome this route is!
