5.10a 200ft Bolts and Gear

This route starts 20 ft right of Wiggy on the arete. Gently climb up the schist reaching left to clip the first bolt on the arĂȘte. Pull over onto the arĂȘte and follow the bolt line up the face. Super fun 5.9/5.10 moves. After about 55 feet bale into the deep crack, placing gear up to _as big as you want_. After about 75 feet you will emerge out of the crack and begin clipping bolts pulling super fun moves on dinner plates to the anchors of Curly.


Bolts and gear of all sizes
