The Gold Bug E3 5c
A neat little highball up the right side of the arete - worth a single star but no more. Squirm onto the ledge then make very brave moves to reach a smaller ledge, and continue to join the Midas Touch.

Escaped up Inca Trail a few months back. Pretty exciting after the crux...

Without touching the arete til after the ledge, just to see if it would go.

Bold, but on good rock and not escapable. Worthwhile. Got a decent shot of adrenaline!

First E3! Totally underrated route. Super bold lower section. Awesome climbing with balancey mantelling on sloping holds above boulders. What more can you want?

Fekking bold - boulder problem start is good and the arrete is frightening. Only piece of pro comes well after both cruxes. Exilerating!
