Description:

A classic route on a rounded arete. Start this climb where the approach trail hits the cliff. Head up and then left on good holds. Get established below a small roof and then tackle the crux (several sequences exist). Then head slighlty right and up a slabby/vertical headwall.

3 out of 5 stars Fourth or fifth try

Good climb. Fantastic crux sequence, but it's really only 20 feet of good climbing.

3 out of 5 stars My first attempt...

... at climbing 12c. I made it to the top, but had to spend a good amount of time working the crux.
Worked it again on TR on 4/19/10

Fun route for first half on the somewhat steep rounded bulge. I don't like slabs though.

Redpoint, 3rd go. A great route with a short crux. Several sequences exist at the crux depending on your strength, crimps versus shallow pockets. A must do!
