Worth every bit of the grade, this pumpy climb mainly follows up the right hand side of the arete found on the right hand side of the upper wall of the Pleasure Palace. The arete is unmistakable and begs to be climbed.
Big holds make for smooth sailing through the first three clips. The business comes getting to the fourth bolt which requires a bigger move, some high feet, and pinpointing a little finger pocket to help fire high. The climbing eases after working through the crux and comes to an end shortly after. A great climb that offers clean lead falls at the crux.

The Petzl Sama is a good all-around harness for sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbs. It offers up low profile gear loops, good padding, and non-adjustable yet comfortable leg loops while still not being overly bulky or heavy. Great for beginners or experienced climbers.
