An excellent route up a rounded arete. Start just left of arete and climb past bolts to a move up & right near a roof crack. Some people skip the last bolt on the arete.
On the West Wall across from the rappel gully, just before the big boulder.
Bolts & mussy hooks.

For some reason I always struggle with this route and have yet to lead it anywhere near clean.

@ Mike, that thing is not easy. Until you lock down the beta.

I understand that the person who bolted the route intended for the route to climb the arete. Well, it doesn't. Several bolts on this route are way, way too far to the left. In fact, I think it really takes away from the quality of the route.

This is bolted quite well, intended for clean falls around the arete, albeit there's one un-needed bolt (2nd from the top I think, just after the crux).

Tall boy beta goes straight up the arÍte without getting sucked way right. Very few people do this cause the chalk gets washed away on these moves, but not on the holds to the right. Sometimes you got to think outside the chalk line.

Excellent climbing and beautiful all around but I wouldn't personally say it was well bolted (sorry not trying to anger anyone). Bolts are constantly out left around the arete so the rope could grab your foot if you fall. And you might not even see the second-to-last bolt if you're climbing the line.
