THis route is located just left of Redtail. It climbs the arete just left of the black streak. Begin on block ten feet left of Red Tail. Do some slabby climbing through the first few bolts then clip up to the steep feature arete. Fight constant barn dooring as you pinch, lieback and edge your way to the chains. Might as well climb it.


9 bolts to a bolted anchor.

I thought this was actually more fun then Redtail. Balancy and engaging climbing up the arete, with a bonus slab fun (10b?) at the bottom.
