Governor Stable requires membership or a paid pass. The Circuit Area is currnetly closed to all climbing while access to the area is negotiated. Please respect the closed / no tresspassing signs posted near the pyramid. The rest of GS proper remains open to members and daypass holders. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The Entrance Arete is a cool little problem that climbs a sharp, hanging arete that faces inside the cave as you enter the cave from the upstream (entrance to Governor Stable) corridor. Stand start with hands in a horizontal crack, move though a cool slot, and perhaps grasp a textured pinch on the arete to make a big move to the flat lip. Mantel here or use the flat shelf above and back to get on top. I believe the guide has this as V3, but I think it is easier. This problem is one of the best of it's grade at the Stable, but is mostly overlooked.

Location 

Upstream corridor entrance to the Cave.

Protection 

One, or two pads if you are not solid at the grade.
