4 out of 5 stars fun climb

There is a bolt with no hanger on the face to the right of the start. Can protect the initial lieback with a wire stopper on the bolt. Also TRed a direct variation that does not cross the arete, but instead goes straight up to the anchors...about 10a/b.

5 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic

Great, great route. Needs #4 big bro to make start safe. Crux seems tough for the grade. Beautiful view from the top.
