It's not the easiest of 11's... not the longest either... but a very fun route, well, totally FUN and worth doing over and over. It will stay dry under light rain. Expect a little bit of run off after down poors.

Another great route, though I was silling and didn't head off to the arete until way late! Bad Danno Bad

Not safely bolted. Possible ground fall from 3rd bolt.

Great route. The arete up high is particularly good.

an attentive belay eases the mind between the second and third bolts. if this is at your level, this is going to feel tough. fun.. but not stellar.

One of the best .11s out there. If you use the no-hands rest around the arete, does that still make it an .11b?

one of the best???? it's OK but not even in the top ten. worth climbing though.
