|I'm not positive, but I believe this route was identified in the Lohn guidebook as "The Arete" as a 5.7 R. Terry would know more than I.|

Great route that packs quite a variety of climbing into a relatively short distance. Don't expect much of any pro for the chimney to the ledge and the chicken head finale. Easier climbing off the last small sloping ledge but hollow holds (my partner broke off a large piece following) and pro that's already a ways a way makes it exciting. Falling from the last section would not be ideal and you'd probably mess yourself up pretty good.
Great route though that really packs in the exposure!
