This is a very straightforward line up the blunt arete (#46 in picture). Note, this cliff gets sun till very late, it is great for warmer winter days.


Plenty of bolts, (probably 6 or so) leading to a 2 bolt anchor with double quicklinks.

4 bolts. It would be bad to fall before clipping the first bolt, and you might crater if you fell off before the second bolt. I wouldn't suggest this as a good "first lead".

Nice lead, somewhat commiting. Holds are solid.

A great variation is to stay off of the arete and just use the cracks. Fun jams!

Climbed this today (8-8-09), and it is a fun 8. The crux is right at the first bolt though it is clipable without conquering the move. Work on mostly positive holds to the middle of the arete or work the crack to the left side for good jams. Either variation was fun. Nice ledge at the anchors to set up or rap off. This route gets hot in the sunlight....

Side note: The winch hooks Ken placed are not there. The anchors are double cold shuts to rap off from.

Pretty committing in the sense that it's not grid-bolted. The bolts are about 7-10 feet apart. I actually would have liked to place a few pieces of pro while I had to rescue lead it for someone who got a little gripped and had to back down. Fun route though! I just wouldn't recommend it for the leader lacking confidence or a new leader.
