Description 

Atrocious climbing up this pinnacle's southwest arete puts you on top of a cool desert summit in a lonely part of the Wonderland. An old bolt ladder now a classic grain arete lieback.


Location 

This route is at the top of the face routes Psoriasis and Exit Stage Right, it is the southwest arete of a small block. To descend after getting off the block, down climb southeast gully to a small tree with rappel slings and rap with one rope.


Protection 

5 old 1/4 threaded rawl drives close together, the first with no hanger. On top is one old small rusty lonely bolt. We draped the rope over the rock to rappel off.

Rob and I stumbled upon this bolt ladder after putting up Psoriasis, so we just kept climbing.
Those bolts were old when we found them I can't imagine what they are like now.
