BETA PHOTO: Absorbine Junior (right side, blue) and Cornered (...
Climb the right arete of this formation (Cornered is the left arete). Moderately slippery and balancy start goes behind a shrub and up to a few tough and tricky moves, putting you into a few slabby mantles to the top.
Be very careful routing the rope on this one, lots of weird angles and edges at the top waiting to catch and chew up the rope. Easiest to have the belayer to the left of the start.
Behind the rap rings for Mariah, you can also hike up from other areas to get there. Near Mickey Finn and Cornered.
Bolt anchor, walk off.
