BETA PHOTO: Bunk Arete

Description 

A very heady 5.6, with lots of exposure. I wish it were longer.

Location 

Getting off the ground is the easy part. Climb up the face of the first two "ledges" within a few feet of the arete, then directly up the very exposed arete on the last tier. Follow the blue/yellow-blazed access trail to descend.

Protection 

Pro is scarce, with definite ledge-fall potential the entire way. There is a double-bolted anchor at the top.

Fun route, spicy at the top. i thought there was gear where you needed it. a blue tcu backed up with a small stopper and a #2 metolius or similar, protect the final moves. perhaps a little thin for 5.6.
