Clip a high first bolt, then place a few pieces of gear until you get above a ledge and clip another bolt (which is near a protruding bolt stud). Once you make the clip, angle up toward the arete to a small exposed platform. Look down at the rusty fang sticking out below you, then get psyched and step off the ledge onto the face L of the arete and make a few moves up to a clip that feels a bit spicy at this point. Above this, climb the arete to the very top past a couple bolts and good gear, staying to the left and eventually pulling the small roof at the top to the anchors.

Along with Mind Games and Happiness is Slavery this is a true Chossgate classic.


Right above the wooden stairs. Beware the mass amounts of poison ivy at the base.


Mixed. 4 bolts + gear. Some small stuff (.5 BD and under) is nice at the bottom and up high there are some epic #1 and #2 BD placements, and something small is nice to have at the finish.
