Pull the overhanging start to the left of arete and climb the engaging face above. Pretty sandbagged for 12a.


The next arete past Bullet the New Sky. Consider stick clipping the first bolt.


7 bolts to bolted anchor.

A quick complaint before I gush:

I was not impressed with Mr. Horst's bolt-job on this line (I have heard through the grape vine that he did bolt it in a less than ideal way) - nothing personal against him. The third bolt is hard to clip if you are hanging the draws even though there is a good hold lower and if you fall there before clipping (even before you pull slack) you can land on your belayer or deck - I nearly did. I suggest fixing this bolt lower or placing a permadraw there which you can at least grab. Probably the latter since it's a ring bolt. If you lead the 11c to the right you can probably swing around the arÍte and clip a long draw to it.

Apart from that it's a fantastic line! Man are the moves cool and super sequential. Screw up one foot placement or hand sequence or lose your focus and you are coming off this thing. Should be a mandatory climb for the grade there.
