An awesome, intimidating looking arete climb just right of "Stress Management." This one looks much harder than it turns out to be as you can pull on to the left side of the arete for a rest near the 5th bolt. Still a stout lead and scene of many whippers.

Descent Options:

Rappel from chains on top.

5 out of 5 stars Sweet, technical arete climb.

Not your typical Royal Columns climb! This one looks stout and overhanging from the base, but climbs a bit easier than it looks. Very technical climbing on small hard to see edges. The bolts on this one have recently been replaced. Awesome route!!
