Climb arete from sit or stand, same grade for both. excellent sharp climbing with slippery top out.


The arete on a very nice square boulder right off the north side of trail. Boulder has 1/4" bolts on east face.

Paul Horak and I also did the face to the left via the flake and some palmy/slopers for the left hand. Probably V4.

The classic offwidth crack further left is V0/1 depending on whether it is done as a LB or OW. It has a real ankle-buster fall!
