Some loose rock on arete, be careful of belayer.

After having done this on TR, have a new respect for it on lead. As has been mentioned elsewhere, to get the true 5.10 rating stay in-line with the bolts. Using the arete to the left I think makes it more of a 5.9.

I wish I knew how to replace bolts. The first bolt is a weak spinner and a few others are suspect. I backed up a couple of them with small cams.

I really enjoyed this climb. It is pretty consistent and nicely exposed. To me the crux was in the first 15-20 feet, as it seemed that there were few places to put my feet.
