This ascends the striking arete with orange and black rock. Climb sustained flakes and pinches with an ever steepening angle, leading to a committing move just below the anchors.


This is the obvious arete twenty feet left of Magical Handhold.


5 bolts, two bolt anchor, no chains. Rappel off Blueblood's anchors twenty feet to the right.

Someone took the chains off the anchors of this climb in the last year. Seriously, what kind of douche nozzle steals anchors? Been happening to a number of routes up here.

Still no chain on the anchors. Walk right on large ledge 20 feet to rap off adjacent route.
