Another arete with some wonderful moves. Although easy, the exposure is definitely there. Kinda reminded me of "Shark's Breath" at Rushmore.


The route begins on top of the large boulder in the center of the NW face.


4 bolts. A number 3 Camalot will protect the approach to bolt #1. Chained anchors, however it is better to rap off of "Alien Encounter" or one of the "Mary Kate & Ashley" routes. Also, use the directional hook for belaying your second.
