A cool climb, much better then the one to the right, though less varied. Lots of bridging to be found on it.

Great laybacking with a couple of good rests, one on the ledge and the other in a bridged position below the overlap. Getting over that was easy enough but the crux lurked right at the top! Put my foot on the obvious smear on the arÍte and couldn't get in balance to get a handhold higher up so pumped out and had to have a rest. Second go, putting the foot on the side wall itself rather than the arÍte did the trick as was much more in balance to get the next handhold. After that there were a couple of techy moves on flatties (!) which made for a good finish. E3 5c, may be 6a but the moves aren't that hard if you get them right. Nick fell off literally the last move, flipped upside down and hurt his ribs, no damage done fortunately but had to have a couple of days off. We headed down after this and I popped into Moab for the evening.
