The aretes


A very unique climb in which you stem between two opposing dihedrals before shooting up a slot in the rock and up to a scenic ledge. Start just in front of the refrigerator cave. Scramble up 20' of easy stone to the bigger cave, and let the adventure begin. Pass the Psycho Killer anchor bolts on your left, and continue through the roof. Beware of loose rock here. That handcrack in front of you really is as good as it looks... enjoy. After a few moves, face holds present themselves just as the crack gives way to some jumbled off-width which makes for easy laybacking. Pull up on the rock knobs for a classic finish to a scenic ledge.

Given 10b in the old book.
