Short Arete (blue & orange).

The black & yellow r...


Walk down along the top of the cliff with a bit of a drop into a gully. Reach over the knife-edge summit of the slab to reach the rappel anchor. The rappel in is less than 30 meters. The belay on the slab below is pretty much anchor-less. A few cams might be nice to protect getting to the first bolt, as much for the belayer as the leader.

This is a friction route up a blunt arete. I pitched at the crux when a hold crumbled; not really sure what to rate it.

Six bolts. Also a mix of cams may help to get to the first bolt.
