Rumor has it that this arete has been free climbed at 12d. There were plans to bolt it several years back, but it still remains a TR climb.

I finally got on this after 3 years of walking by. By far one of the coolest climbs in Little Falls, I definitely needs to be bolted so it could be done clean. I ascended with a few falls but only gave it one good session. Should be around 12d or 13ish. There was no move I couldn't do but some very reachy crimpy moves. greg why didn't you force me to climb this earlier on.
