Description:

This route has been done clean on tr by Troy Isakson, so it won't be a project for long. Bouldery moves past the first bolt lead to a crack. All bolts are out left on the arete in order to keep falling climbers off the ledge. Casual climbing past two more bolts lead to a decision. Adventure out left to a hard clip and 5.11+ moves to the finish, or continue out the crack using the last bolt for The Stranger to finish. Go left 5-11+, go right 5.10 we could call the 5.10 variation chicken on a string.

Descent Options:

I forgot I hadn't climbed this yet. Kind of a stout finish.

4 out of 5 stars Good stuff George!

Committing at the top! Was this the first free ascent? July temps make for good climbing.
