Description:

Long, sustained face climb. Awkward moves after the first bolt, with jagged rocks to smash into if you fall. Its possible to stickclip the 2nd bolt if you are in doubt. Harder than it looks.

3 out of 5 stars hung sooo much

The beginning of this is so fricking hard, I almost gave up. Thank god for stick clip!
Then coming over the bulge at the top of the arete--also super hard! After all that, I took a 20 foot whipper off the dihedral near the top. My foot slipped and whoosh, there I went. Took everyone by surprise.

4 out of 5 stars Nice and long!

This is a great climb and harder than it looks. It is slightly harder than Buried Treasure to it's right (also a good climb).
