BETA PHOTO: Arete 1

Description 

This route might, at first, seem soft; perhaps no harder than mild 5.7. However, once you get towards the top - and start on the slightly overhanging, slanted part of the arete - you'll see why it's actually fairly graded. If you duck off onto the easier face to the left at the top, you're only gypping yourself.


Location 

Climb the arete approximately 3 feet right of Easy Rider and 10 feet right of Up A Tree. 5.1 scramble to easier walk-off terrain, from the top.


Protection 

Spicy lead, especially at the top (very sparse). Recommend TRing this one. Bolted anchor at the top.

It's actually 1 1/2 star.

we basically straddled the arete the whole way and it felt like a pretty easy 5.8 at most.

i think you need to stay to the right in order for it to be 5.9. Cheating left in anyway makes it substantially easier.
