Bolts above the arete. You need long runners.

Description 

Climb the arete on the far left side of the main face.

This beautiful (but short) arete has about ten really nice reachy moves between positive edges and dishes, with two or three nice undercling moves to finish on a bushy ledge. You can make the route A LOT harder by starting in the big dihedral around the corner to the left and then moving up and right onto the arete.

Lower off from the bushy ledge, or move right and turn the roof at the top of the 5.8 crack on huge jugs. The roof is harder than 5.8.

Protection 

Toprope only. Anchor 30' slings to a small sturdy tree and boulders at the top of the crag.

You can continue the roof when you get to the ledge. I think it runs about 10d / 11a. Give it a shot next time!!

There are several challenging and fun places to climb out of the dihedral on the left onto the arete. I pulled the overhang near the bottom, left of the big ledge, 9+ or 10-. Or if you go up and right from the ledge it looked more like 5.8. Once on the arete, it's more rewarding to stay left near the edge.

There are bolts above this arete. You don't have to anchor to anything else.

This is fun climb, and you can move to the left at the ledge with a bush to get off the climb.
