This curious face begins 50 feet left of Vector Trouble by some rhododendron plants. Has a low overhanging boulderish start. After the start angle left to a ledge. Head up the easy face to a less than easy arete which leads to a small ledge with anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Good route.

Has a little bit of everything. Boulder start, fun face climbing and technical arete. Bit run out on the face at one point, but it's easy climbing.

3 out of 5 stars A bit stiff...

Felt a quite burly at times and that arete section is kind of thin... bouldery start was fun but probably not for everyone. Maybe I was having a weak day but this area seems to sandbag a bit on the grades... or maybe elsewhere is a bit inflated? 10b doesn't usually kick my ass quite this much, but yow was I tired. A few tough moves up to an easy middle break then the brutal arete...
