Kasie on the porcelain arete


Routes goes up the arete on the right of the main wall.


Follow trail along base of the cliffs. After maybe a 20 minute hike you will be at the wall. Route is on the obvious arete right of graffiti.


Long webbing or static for less than ideal top rope set up off trees. BD #4 and #3 can also be used.

Bring a a BD #4 and #3 for the TR set up. Then you can also go off a big tree far back from the edge and to climbers left. I used an entire 50 meter span of rope. Not the easiest set up, but a fun route.

This can be set up with 75 ft of static rope off trees. I wouldn't leave cams on top. They could get stolen. It has happened.

PG13?? Where did you get that from? It is ground fall most of the way up the route. It isn't a lead. It is a free solo on gear. Someone broke their back here on Zen Master so be careful.

This thing looks cool. The recent photos really make it look steep!

For safety's sake I updated rating to R. I'd rather have the database be more cautious then less.
