Pulling through the overhang on Metamorphosis. Ph...

Description 

Pumpy climbing on a pretty, overhanging arete. Getting off the ground is the hardest part of this excellent climb, so stick-clipping is a good idea.

Finesse your way up a thin, pebbly face on the right side of the arete; if this is too much to handle, swallow your pride and stem onto the wall across the corridor from the arete. Things get easier once you reach an undercling above the first bolt. Continue up the steep arete to the top.

Location 

Starts around the corner about 30' right of Faith on an obvious arete.

Protection 

Seven bolts; bolted anchors at the top. NOTE: if you're going to toprope this, keep draws on the last three bolts for directionals. Otherwise, a fall will probably result in a nasty pendulum into the opposite wall of the corridor.
