Comments: The proper name of this route is between the cheeks.It goes directly thru the tiered roofs and follows the thin crack to the top.I lead it on rps and placed one knifeblade on lead.I fixed the bblade for the enjoyment of future generations.Stay of the arete when climbing. The arete is also a great lead at 5.12A. Bothare also grat for top roping.When leading Between the cheeks I busted a RP and almost decked.
