15' left (south) of Coral Bells Arete. Well protected line that travels up through the blocky roof/overlap to the smoother upper section.

70 meter rope recomended for rap. Most people have not had a problem using a 60 meter, if you choose to try it make sure and tie off the ends to your rope.

5 out of 5 stars Crux is early and hard

The first and fourth bolts on this climb are quite difficult. The climb eases up considerably after the 5th bolt. Well protected, but your probably going to scrape something if you fall.

5 out of 5 stars Loved it!

I really enjoyed this route. Didn't realize how long the climb was. I just kept going and going and finally reached chains. Being lowered down we ran out of rope (60m) with me still 10' up and had to do some finiky moves to untie and climb down. One of my favorite climbs though!

2 out of 5 stars A long climb, great views.

This is good 5.9 climbing through the first 7 bolts are so, then the climbing eases considerably. It is worth doing this climb simply for the views, and the length.
