Description:

Starts about 10 ft left of Walk By Me. A very difficult bouldery start (rumor has it that a hold has broken off, increasing the difficulty) on the arete leads to easier moves trending right toward the top. Alternate start on the face further right is slightly easier. Stick clip the first bolt.

3 out of 5 stars yippee

fun climb. if you start the climb on the arete it is more like a v3 boulder problem. bringing gear for the top would be a good idea. i ran it out but i wouldnt suggest it. it also is usually a little dirty at the top so if you do run it out heres fair warning.

3 out of 5 stars Ascent

Broken hold on the start makes it a good 5.10+. Start in the middle of the face, climbing to a nice pocket (skipping the first bolt) and clip the second bolt. Large cam needed between the second and third bolt. Sling the tree as you go by.
