Comments: That problem to the right is cool but I can't remember much about it. It's been twelve years. Honestly, I called this problem Big Arete because that's what a couple friends and myself called it and that name is fairly descriptive. At the time not many people had gone up there but to be honest I have no idea what it is "supposed" to be called.

Comments: I've done the route with both starts and both are recommended. The original 10c start is a bit more heads up and involved.

Comments: If you are worried about the follower it's a good idea to set a belay about 30' past the crux. There's a good stance, and it allows for better communication and visibility, as well as less rope stretch.
