A boulder problem off the ground and starting from the crack to the right allows one to reach a great incut ledge and mantle up to the first good rest ledge. Next, move a little left of the arete, make a tricky move (crux) to reach the next good hold and clip the third bolt (avoid the temptation to reach over to 'Nice' crack to the left). Continue from here on the right side of the arete using sweet pockets and positive ledges.
Fun moves, but a little contrived, as the more natural line, Nice, is within reach at the hard part.


This climb is toward the right side of the section of Dead Cholla with Twisted Feet. This climb follows the arete/face to the right of Nice, and is the 1st bolted climb left of the prominent Esmerelda arete.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. The anchor stinks for lowering (just bolts, no links), so plan on leaving your draws and getting them when you walk out, or reach over to the 'Nice' anchors to the left.
