BETA PHOTO: ThermoNuclear Meltdown with the lone bolt and anch...


Climb up to the bolt using the fingercrack in the dihedral and holds on the arete. After the bolt, move right a little to pull the bulge. Above, angle up and left to the anchors.

This is an awesome route with great gear, though placing it at the bulge may be strenuous. Some just run it out a little to get to the lower angled wall above.


Just right of Snake, Rattle, & Roll. This is the beautiful layback dihedral/arete with 1 bolt.


Gear to 2", 1 bolt, 2 bolt anchor.
