Climbs the Arete to the left of Hospital Corner. First pitch follows the beautifull orange arete through thin delicate moves to a bulge, then up dikes to a preplexing finish. One 60m rope will get you close to the ground. Carefull or you'll drop someone on the lower off. The second pitch climbs even thinner and more balancy moves past a few bolts to the anchor.

If you want to be sure to get down on one rap, use a 70m rope. Or, if you've got a 60, walk east on that ledge with the anchors 10 feet and rap off the Arctic Breeze anchors.

We rapped from the first set of anchors, and our 70mm rope JUST made it to the ground.
