BH on FA of Rock Doc arete, Vanishing Point.


Climb steep face and arete, with sheer ending.


Located around the corner from Werner's Legacy, utilizing the arete on Werner's.


2, # 2 cams to start, to 4 bolts, then use #4 stopper placement for finial section. Two bolt anchor atop Werner's Legacy.

Fun route. Up at the top (and the crux) the rock quality is a bit chossy and crumbling for foot placements. Maybe with more traffic this route will clean up.

TRed after leading Werner's. Good layaways off the arete. After the last bolt, stay right of the arete and finish on jugs, a square cut edge or two and a finger crack. Real steep and fun.

This is a fun route! There is a great finger lock and nut placement above the last bolt. There is a great finger pocket in the same area as well.
