Chris Sorensen on Hobnail Arete.

Description 

Fun arete and face climbing leads to a cool pillar like ending. Feels more exposed at the top than you think it would.


Location 

This route climbs the fin-like arete to the right of Throulin's Crack.


Protection 

3 bolts plus small to medium nuts or cams.
2 Fixe SuperShuts at the top.

This thing has a couple fun moves higher up, and the rock is really nice. I used a green (.75) Camalot between bolts 2 and 3.

Nifty little move from the last bolt to the chains is definitely the highlight of this climb.
