Where Lovely Tower and the Wave Wall form the Lovely Hallway, this is the obvious arete. A bouldery start to the first bolt leads to the meat. Fun stuff.
Four bolts to an anchor. The fourth bolt is most useful as a directional for a toprope, as the anchor is set well back in a funky spot.

Felt like 11.b, but it was in the heat of summer with sweaty hands.

This is a serious .11a. It's in your face, right off of the ground, with a moderately high first bolt and a boulder right behind the base of the climb. Short, but pumpy. Felt hard for the grade.
