Description:

Start from front side of the pillar by the tree in the corner at the end of the 2nd pitch of Northern Pillar. Step out left onto the steep corner; climb a vertical to its top and traverse left (crux) to a stance on the arete. Jug bash back to the right side of the arete and up to the top. (Great holds, a little pumpy.)

3 out of 5 stars cool

Short and fun. Led up to the first anchors, then Dan got the money pitch. Felt easy at the grade.

5 out of 5 stars what an awesome climb

Great climb, lots of fun. The crack is great, the jugs even better. Too bad it's such a short climb. Watch out for hornets nest at the arete.

4 out of 5 stars scary 4 me

2nd pitch scared the poop out of me just below the sloper hold before the traverse. a fall might have been painful at that point. otherwise great climb.

4 out of 5 stars Pumpy!!!

I dont think there is a single move harder than 5.8 on this route but for some reason the top of the initial crack and the traverse are way pumpy. Getting pro in at the crux is strenuous but the ledge below mandates it. Bomber no hands rest on the arete after the crux and then some very fun steep climbing above!
