Description:

Starts 10' right of arete. Move up and left to a stance by the arete. No gear up to this point. Step around arete and make your way to top. Can be done in one long pitch. Use long runners on lower placements to avoid rope drag.

4 out of 5 stars Direct start

Great climb. Not at all "PG" or "R" rated after the start. And not even then if you do the direct start.

4 out of 5 stars Fun lead for the experienced.

Good route. Worst runout is on the start, so just as risky for the 2nd.

4 out of 5 stars bring your route-finding skills

I warmed up on this route. I don't recommend warming up on it. It is runout and you really need to look around at times to find out where it goes.
