Description 

Not a destination but an easy way to set up a TR for Supremacy Slab. Little in the way of pro, but the "crux" is in the first 10 feet with a reasonably safe fall onto level ground (solo it). This is indeed on the northeast arete of Supremacy and is low-angle, short, and kinda silly.

Not much fits...

This is a surprisingly good free solo. Positive holds, beautiful quartzite, and an interesting view of the canyon near sunset. The initial moves are positive, and the difficulty eases after the first 10-15 feet. Will feel nostalgic for ex-Devil's Lake regulars (where it would not have a 5.7 rating).
