This short route climbs a bolted arete to right of charlie's overhang. Easier variations are possible on the same bolt line. Probably a seldom visited route, although a good climb.


From the right side of the second buttress, scramble to the top and then head up and right to the next cliffband. look for the short bolted arete.


quickdraws, chain anchors

This route is so lame. It has 2 bolts and then 2 links of chain bolted as the 3rd bolt and then no anchors at the top. The guide book says 4 bolts and this says it has an anchor but there isn't anything. I had to go like 20 feet higher and sling a tree. If you are gonna bolt a sport climb then put anchors at the top.
