    NOTE: This climb originally stayed on the bolt line up the arete proper. Hence the 5.9 grade. The vegetation and lichen to the left is now gone and has revealed much better (bigger) holds. Most folks now move left around the arete to the slab and much easier holds. If climbing this var. The grade is more like 5.6 This is not the worlds easiest 5.9.
