4 out of 5 stars Small Purchase

I concur, a great single trad pitch by RR standards at the grade. Once you rap the Community Pillar descent (good for most of the long routes in this area), just pull your rope down in the chimney (left side) and you will have it stacked for this pitch. Definitely will get warm and fuzzy with your C3's. A bit of lie backing in the middle. Bit of a reach towards the top. Good stuff. Fairly new sport route up the arete to the left, shares the same rap anchor, to hot and dehydrated to check it out. Looks tame.

5 out of 5 stars -

They need "only fell once!" on the style menu ;-)
Bring a #4 or so to protect the first 30' or so. It's ...heady... without it.
Greg Barnes replaced the anchor with two 3/8" and rings, April 2007. A 60m -just- makes it.
