Ken engages the arete, belayed by Marsha Trout on ...


This fun route ascends clean, exposed, alpine granite. From the bolted belay, climb onto the arete and follow it up to an engaging face that tops out on a beautiful ledge system.


Approach by climbing the stellar 5.7, Lincoln Lake Apron. From the last belay, traverse left to a bolted belay station at the base of the arete (red and yellow dotted line on topo).

It is also possible to rappel 30 meters from the route's summit anchors to a ledge, above and left of the bolted belay, with a separate anchor. From the ledge, three or four bolts connect to the headwall, bypassing the arete.


Bolts to fixed anchors.

A good, very well-bolted route. Felt a little stiff for 10-. There is also a bit of exfoliation still occurring so don't be surprised if that little edge you're holding on to breaks away as you pull on it.
