Ascend the arete on the right of the Aries dihedral. It is relatively short, but still longer than "On the Verge", which lies directly above.


Has 2 bolts, but bring some small cams, a 3, and a 3.5" cam.

This route is not an X/R route. It has been re-bolted and the protection at the top is excellent. A #1 fits in the back of the crack and a #2 fits in the center if you want to double your pleasure. That would be overkill tho!

I would put it an 11a. Start on the roght side of the corner and work your way up to the left side. Finish with a long reach. Scary, but fun.

The name was Russell's idea.
Thank goodness he suggested it, as our original name was really bad.
