This is the arete on the left side of the slab. This side is steeper than the rest of the slab. Start near the same rail of center problem, but move to the arete. You can pinch or lieback the arete, but it is easiest to find the hidden crimpers on it. There is a good mono pocket, too. Mantle to top out or traverse the lip right or left to get down.


Pad or strong ankles.

Definitely use a pad. Our good friend, J.G., took an ankle tweeker here.

There's a good-sized rock right below the beginning, which makes the landing initially uneven, but fortunately higher up near the topout is further right where the landing is better. Very fun arete.
