Per Glenn Schuler: this is the bolted line that takes the left side of the obvious arete (Zorro climbs the right side of this same arete on natural gear).
This climbs the arete on the other side from Zorro.
Entering the thick of it.
Working the arete proper.

If this is the arete left of REPTILE, then I'd call it at least 11-. I felt it was much stiffer than .10 (this means beware of sandbag potential from old dudes!)

You are correct Phil, this is the bolted line that takes the left side of the obvious arete (Zorro climbs the right side of this same arete on natural gear). It's been a long time since I've climbed it, but this old dude remembers more like 5.11 as well. Either way, it's a really good climb.
