This enjoyable arete climb has lots of thin cracks and fun face movement. The rests are huge...once you get to them.


Located on the sharp arete near Righteous are the Brave.


1 bolt off the ground with small gear (<#1 Camelot) to protect the rest.

This route has a tricky (balancey) move before clipping the bolt. Small cams work great on this route!

The gear is also not all that great! Take a couple medium to small nuts also, you'll be thankful.
