Start on the left side of the arete and climb up to to reach the first bolt (crux). Head up and left to pull a small overhang on big jugs to gain a stance. From here, its nice face climbing to the top. Make a low angle traverse right to reach the anchors.


From point where the approach trail meets the cliff, head left along the cliff and pass under a block leaning on the cliff. Continue past a few routes until you reach a buttress with a sport line to either side of the arete. Scaphoid is the left line.


4 bolts, drop in shuts above Lunate, 5.10c.

Fun climb, but if you are a 5.9 leader, good luck with the first two bolts. Felt more like mid-ten climbing there.
