Description:

Do the left arete, same start as left slab route on cool horizontal jug, keep feet off jutting rocks but use the footholds on main chunk of crag, can't use boulder behind and left at all; route basically follows arete to top, keep your body basically on the right side of the arete, but never really using holds very far from the arete (within a foot pretty much). The one big blobby ledge 2/3 of the way up, on the right, you can use your right foot on it. (Going left you could milk a couple rests on the left of the arete, which would drop the grade a letter or two.) Techy and a few powerful pulls in spots, great rock

Descent Options:

walk down left or right

5 out of 5 stars Fun, challenging

Technical, cool high steps, heel hooks, power moves, thin feet, little crimps...slopey and smeary too. Not sure on the grade, the last few moves are hard. Third clip is tough but there's no other place to do it. Really good for a short route.
