Description 

Start up the right-slanting ramp to the first bolt. A couple mantles through the white rock will bring you to the third bolt, protecting a crux on very thin holds. Continue up the fractured dark rock above, past another bolt and into an alcove. The headwall above requires some movement back and forth, passing two more bolts. Finish at a bolted chain anchor near the top of the west face of the arete. Rappel to descend.


Location 

Second bolt line from the right, center right of west face.


Protection 

6 bolts, bolted anchor
