Slab climbing over two short roofs with very thin gear.
Slab your way up to the lower roof placing all the gear you can. (I placed a grey alien about halfway up to the roof and a small nut slotted behind a odd flake under the roof.) Pull the roof using a couple of flakes and/or the edge of the arete to a stance/smear below a tiny tree (which has been removed). If you look close you will see a slot for another small nut...use it. Make committing moves over/around said tree to a good ledge. Climb more to a good horizontal and get some good gear. Slab your way up towards the second roof. Along the way, I found a spot for a great black alien and another small nut. Once at the roof, another gear placement can be found. Pull the roof and make a quick dash to the anchors.
This route can easily be TR'ed after leading W.R., but it's also a very sastifying lead.
This route has the potential to clean up very nicely after the lichen cleans off.
To the right of Winters Respite. You will be climbing the arete edge and face to the right of W.R. climbing past two roofs/overlaps. Starts about 15 feet to the right.
Black - Red Alien, small nuts, 1.5 Friend. This route shares rap rings with Winters Respite.
