Start: On the arÍte to the right of Airy Aria. Pitch 1: Climb the arÍte and crack to the Airy Aria belay ledge (5.8+) (rap bolts & chains). Pitch 2: Climb the corner to the overhang. Work straight up to a creative no-hands stance below the next overhang. Traverse left about 8 ft. and climb the overhangs past two bolts. Diagonal up right to the huge roof (optional hanging belay). Traverse left about 10 ft. and work up to a scrunched position below the next roof. Traverse right to the nose (harder if taller) and up to the top (5.11a).

4 out of 5 stars vengeance is mine!

I got on this in June of 2011 on a very hot and humid day and it spanked us. I took three 20+ foot whippers on the final traverse, with the third one blowing a cam and leaving me 10 feet below my belayer. This time, in good weather, it felt much easier, although I led the 2nd pitch this time.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome route!

I took a fall on the end traverse last year and wanted to send it clean, so I waited for nice Fall weather. It actually didn't feel that hard this time.
