4 out of 5 stars Freaky, but Fun

when you make the move onto the face over the arete, it's a little freaky.. got me freaked out the first few times i tried it for sure. got physced out the first time, the second time i took a pretty good whipper, and the third time i climbed it clean.. a couple of the moves seemed more like an 8 than a seven.. the top of the route was really sandy

4 out of 5 stars lovely arete, sketchy bolting

Really enjoyable climbing on lead, but for the grade the bolt placement is awkward and dangerous even for the second, due to the potential swing into the gully. Not one to get beginners started on.
