On up.

Description 

This is a good route that is a great alternative to the first pitch chimney on Napa Valley. It has engaging climbing with great position on some solid rock. I recommend starting on the right side of the arete.

Location 

Start a few feet right of the first pitch chimney of Napa Valley. Either climb up the bushy crack on the right side of the arete and traverse on to the arete, or start on the right side and traverse in. The right is better but slightly harder and difficult to protect.

Protection 

Draws, a few fingers, and if you go from the left a larger piece. There are two bolts on top.

A real fantastic climb. The moves are all there but require some searching. Crimpy granite hands and feet. So fun!
