First bolted route to the left of the Army Route. A 60m rope easily reaches and a 50m should reach. climbing boulder says .9+ but I'd say .9- tops if not in the .8 range.

5 out of 5 stars Jason led and set up toprope

Followed crack up and left then new crack system upward with final small traverse to right to top out. Nice hand jams in vertical crack midway up! I would rate it 5.8 except the traverse crux at top might be 5.9.

5 out of 5 stars solid rock

Good route on uncommonly solid rock for Cheyenne canyon, well bolt-protected too.

3 out of 5 stars Fun Arete

Really nice cool down climb for the day. The online topo lists it as 5.8 but 5.9+ seems more likely.

Fun lead, well bolted except for the funky homemade hangers.
