This is an arete on the right hand side of an obvious open book directly above a flat spot at the top of the trail. Follow the arete clipping the bolts as you go.

4 bolts to cold shuts. Crux on pinches between the 2ed and 3ed bolts. There is a 2ed slightly easier 1 move crux going over mini-roof right before the 4th bolt.

Lead Ranger Danger - great fun! Looks harder from the ground than it actually is. Trend to the right for the first and second bolts to keep the route about 5.7/5.7- as going to the left will make the route about 5.10+. The fun part is going over the roof and the crux is to the 4th bolt as there are few holds and you are exposed before cruising over to the "safety" above the roof. This route is short and sweet and the view is stunning; especially at sunset on a fall day!
