βeta: it is a bit scrappy at the start and the rock needs care but wow! what a great second half: beautiful exposed climbing with some absorbing rock features. I agree with the first comment one of the best at this grade I have done.

Best done in the morning shade or afternoon when it is cold. I messed up with the anchor and threading so that needs more practise!

Humpty Dangler 21 Oct, 2007 Lead O/S Getting on the route was an uncomfortable squirm onto a dirty ledge, followed by a scramble onto foliage, but from then on pure joy. Gaining the outside of the arete was amazing. Glance around the back; it's thin like a knife blade, providing the best hand holds ever encountered and a straightforward, if sustained final third. The fact that this route doesn't merit any stars in the guidebook speaks volumes for the quality of the climbing here at Portland, because this route is better than many with stars elsewhere.
