Description 

Fantastic arete to the left of Super Slide. Cruxes low and high.

I have not led this route. Old school Twallers have told me it went on double ropes.

Hope that more people will TR this great line because it is usually dirty and needs some love.

Green or yellow alien placed midheight is a perfect directional.

Location 

Killer arete just left of Super Slide, 30' left of Passages.

Can be TR'ed from the trail, which adds some 5.10ish steep climbing to the first crux.

Protection 

Double ropes, all kinds of thin stuff and a rather large sack seems to be the consensus.

Anchors (ring) are shared for Passages, Super Slide, and this.

TR'ed it this past weekend...you definitely need to sack up if you plan on leading this one...nice though!

Double ropes are definitely not needed as the gear stays in a good line except for one pocket on the left of the arete. An attentive belayer is the most important gear.
