Alliteration Arete is an enjoyable route that climbs a lot better than it looks. It is best to lower from the top as the stance at the anchor is poor.


Alliteration Arete is the next bolted route uphill from Whoazzur Arete and begins next to a triple-trunked tree.


Nine bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Fun route, bolts are in decent locations, except for the anchor.

Coming off the anchor, you lower really far to the left of the route. Cleaning the route by rapping not possible, by lowering would just be a royal pain.
