i took a look at this and this is definately not a sport route. it is a R trad climb with one bolt.

There is no bolt or piton on this route. You will deck if you fall moving though crux sections. This route is X rated.

I agree with Danny. It should be X rated. Its a cool toprope after doing Arachnid.

Yeah, I don't know if anybody really did it on lead back in the day. We used to just TR it after climbing Arachnid.

Climb Arachnid then set a directional off the large tree at the top of the arete. Some pretty cool moves. Halfway up look down and be glad you aren't on lead.

More fun than expected until we ran out of holds. Just enough holds to be thoughtful but fun until that point. Pretty easy to set-up the directional on the tree from the anchors of Arachnid for a toprope.
