Start using the arete and a series of crimps to clip the first bolt. Traverse left and finesse your way up a sea of edges and crimps until you get to a flat ledge. Mantle on the ledge and stem up the technical corner to easier terrain. Awesome athletic route.


First line to the right of wedding day.

Clipping the first bolt is as usual exciting. The slabby face to the ledge is fun and the dihedral above is great.

Good stuff. Probably would have been a good idea to stick clip. The lower slab climbs well with some delicate edging and usual smith crimpin. At the halfway point, the climb completely changes character. The tricky stems should keep you thinkin!

Excellent varied route. At the top of the opening slab, most people trend left of the bolt line (reaching right to clip). I didn't and fell off a harder sequence.
