Description 

Classic K-bay climbing. A long arete with amazing exposure. When you start the climb you are allready a good 70 feet above the beautiful turquoise lake. Can be done as 2 pitches (Belay station on ledge to right of 7th bolt). However I recommend doing it as one long pitch (rope drag not too much of a problem as arete is reasonably straight). A 50m rope will get you there (just). Consistent climbing at the grade. This climb is a popular solo for the bold among us.


Location 

About a third of the way along the point. Small named stone marks the base.


Protection 

Pitch 1 - 7 Bolts + belay station (DBB)
Pitch 2 - 7 Bolts + DBB
