Description 

This route is FUN FUN FUN, and unique!

This route begins on the arete on the left side of the Treasure Chest area, and is the second bolt line from the left. Climb up the left face of the arete - holds around the arete are on route as well - and into the strange roof-chimney. Climb out of the chimney and up on the right side of the slightly overhung face above it.

I may be a little overly cautious giving this route the 's' rating, but climbing above the third bolt probably should scare you. Once over the roof you can't see your last clip, and remember: that bolt was drilled in overhung sandstone.


Protection 

4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Great route! I have to admit I am glad I was topping it, going over the last bolt is nerve racking. Well worth the climb though. As an added bonus on your way down have your belayer stop you 3/4 of the way down and just take a moment to soak in some of the best scenery around while the waves crash below you.
