Description 

Climbs the obvious overhanging sculpted arete using balancey moves down low which lead to the upper section of jugs. If this thing went for another hundred feet or so it would be an all-time classic.

Location 

Around and right from Route of All Evil on the east face of the formation.

Protection 

5 bolts, anchors

I'd recomend climbing up from the back and then reaching around and clipping the second bolt and then lowering off and then starting the climb like a stick clip. Also this one is a pain to clean, I'd have a buddy TR/Follow clean it.

I've been climbing here for some time now and was wondering is there a Falcon Guide to all the routes in Apple Valley, Horsemans Center? The lackies at 5.10 outlet, Redlands, have no idea. Can you help?

Have not seen a Falcon guide Steve. But there is a Southern California Sport Climbing guide that covers this area.
