The line as seen from up the hill. The bottom coup...

This striking overhanging arete forms the right side of the deep cleft of Refrigerator Chimney. Start on the steep slab in the chimney to a small roof, traverse right onto the arete and power through a bouldery crux throw to side-by-side perfect jugs, follow the left side of the arete for most of the upper half on sustained and unusual features, finish on a great juggy flake to the anchors. Stellar climbing on a beautiful feature!


The obvious steep arete on right at the top of the trail as it reaches the Second Wind Wall.


8 bolts to clip'n'lower anchors

It was a thrill to finally climb this proud feature. Yale put in the anchors and bolted the upper half five years ago and moved away shortly thereafter for work. I always looked at it and assumed it'd be solid 13ish and never got around to finishing it. Yale returned this summer to Sheridan with this route on the top of his climbing agenda. He finished bolting it and graciously let me work it with him. I was very excited to find the climbing was within my ability and that the quality of the moves matched the aesthetics of the feature. Props to Yale for having the vision to get this line finished! Yale chose the name, in reference to the fact that he's recently over the hill...

Whatever t-bow...that climb looked easy. I am going to attempt an all campus ascent (hamster style) next time in Piney Creek...
