Slightly spicy climbing on good gear and relatively easy rock leads to an airy finish on the right arete.


Located on a formation called the Lorax. Work around the right side of the Knight then up slabs to the second fin of rock. Starts in the center of the face at the toe of the formation. Follows cracks and seams that stay right of the main buttress. At a spot where two seams make an X work left then up to bolted face. Route finished to the left of the arete. The high bolt is for Hyrax.


Standard rack of singles to blue Camalot and a few bolts.

Cleaned a 400 lb. block off of Hyrax yesterday that everyone had climbed on. It went right down the belay gully and made a real mess of it. We are a little worried that pulling the rope after the rappel might cause loose stuff to hit people so we suggest moving up and right to the base of Bowling For Bikers and Rocky Road before pulling your rap lines. You can then rap from there.
