20m. Makes El Cap like a giant granite monolith! Climb Forked Tongue then from a highish runner balance left to the arete and a bold finish. The peg on the next route should be avoided if at all possible.
FA. Tony Howard (the arete was reached by bolting the huge overhang) 1969. FFA. Steve Bancroft 1978

To whoever placed the totally unnecessary belay bolt at the top of this route - you should be ashamed of yourself!

Fell off (and thus failed) the traverse. The handholds are not generous! Good conditions and dry skin recommended.
