Description:

This climb is fairly new, being bolted this summer (2008). Many people mistakenly climb this to the right, in the corner close to Zorro face. This is not the route! The route follows the bolt line or goes slightly left of the bolts up the arete near Face-o-meter. You are at risk of a ground fall at the second clip if you go off route!

Descent Options:

Lower, rap

Rock looks suspect, but, it's pretty solid

4 out of 5 stars Easy climb

This would be a great climb for a new leader. Easy climbing, easy clipping stances.

1 out of 5 stars Oops, went right.

Went up right, as it seemed like the most natural line, but was chossy. Felt like 5.6.

3 out of 5 stars Face is great, but I used choss

Since I used the choss, I probably climbed a 5.7. It seems to be a good route in that on the same line several different grades can be climbed.
