Description:

The route is the bolt line just left of Shark's Breath (both routes share the same last bolt). Climb the fins and jugs on the bottom half to the light-colored headwall. Pull the two crux moves on the smooth face to the top of the arete and the anchors will be on your left. This is a great climb for sport climbers leading at 5.7 who are ready to take it up a notch. The two crux moves are protected well and a lead fall would be nice and clean.

5 out of 5 stars Great route

Fun lead, one of the easier 5.8s in the area.

3 out of 5 stars Decent climb.

This was my first 90ft climb. Skip the first few bolts to help with rope drag. Has one sketchy move over a crack and into a mantle. A fall there would be bad. Other than that very well protected. I thought the vertical face was harder than 5.8.
