Description:

Retroed, this is one of the best routes for the grade at the New. Start on a ledge and boulder up the hand crack to a bolt, traverse left across some slopey holds trending upward toward the arete. Once you reach the arete, move up to the cold shuts. Clipping the shuts is hard if you are short.

3 out of 5 stars Not quite classic.

The guide gives this full stars, but I'm not so sure. Quite enjoyable, though.
