4 out of 5 stars Cool route

Fun, easier moves low to an interesting bulge at the 4th bolt. There were two apparent lines up the bulge, (straight up and left on the arete) and the straight up one I chose seemed pretty tough. Really good rests a bit higher keep the grade moderate. Nice line!

5 out of 5 stars Long feeling

Good! Feels long, not really that long though. Hanging out and clipping anchors can feel more awkward than summiting little block ledge, following anchors and doing the awkward clip bolts at your feet thing. Did this route ever see a summiting 2nd Pitch?
