The Aerialist climbs the crack and roof system in two excellent pitches.

P1: 5.10, all trad, 65 feet. The crack is brilliant. Enough said. Pro runs from a single large cam to protect the flaring start to 6-8 pieces for the crack. These run mostly 0.5 inch to 1.5 inch.

P2: 5.11, all bolts, 65 feet. Blast up on excellent rock to the roof above. Negotiate the roof on the right using sidepull slots. A tricky crux comes between bolts 2 and 3.


The Aerialist is the right route "B" in the Eyrie Sector photo.


Full set of cams, extra in 0.5 to 1.5 inch, a dozen quickdraws, and something for the double bolt anchor at the top of P1 and P2. The base belay is cams only, there are no base bolts.
