This is the bolted line that climbs the prominent arete in the right-center portion of the Northern Point. The climb offers up a bit of everything in terms of the style of climbing and is by no means a gimme.
Start up the awkward crack from the ground that runs right to left. Hand jams and some proper body positioning will work your way up to the top of the crack to clip the first bolt. From there you get some small holds, crimpy edges, an arete hug, and top it off with an awkward dihedral. All-in-all, it's a climb worth doing but we found ourselves scratching our heads at how awkward it felt at times.
