|sweet climb. you'll wish it was longer, though you'll probably be pumped as it is. would be a "name" climb if it was on the frontside.|

Good climb but the bolt placements are pretty bad in my opinion. For both the second and third bolts I found stances a few feet below them that would've made much better places to clip from. It's nice and spicy though, which can be fun.
I actually felt that the crux came at the last couple of moves before the jugs at the top, just after clipping the final bolt. All the holds up there seem to be sidepulls making for a couple of delicate smears.
Also, as of Sept. 23rd, 2006 all of the bolts were spinners.

|An amazing arete with very fun moves. I think the new Watts guide is correct with the grade of .11a. Highly recommended.|
