Justin Day getting on the Black Widow Arete
Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


This was officially the 1st route on the wall. The B.W.A. is the furthest route on the right before stepping into the cave. A few tricky cruxes down low with another more powerful crux through the steep arete above. Fantastic, steep climbing!


Furthest route on the right side of the wall. Start from the large boulder and stem across onto the Black Widow Arete.


All bolts are Titanium. Bolted anchor for descent...
