O.G. Arete at sunset


Start low on the arete on the right side. Pull on, and utilize the some compression with a unique gaston sequence to bypass the blank part of the face, then continue up and left finally topping out the bulge on good holds.


Far end of the Inner Canyon. From Highway, look towards La Cumbre Peak. O.G. Arete is the overhanging bent prow straight that way.

OR go to Debra, then head downhill (away from the ocean) for a few minutes.


Pads and spotters.
One rock in the landing near the end, but it is fairly flat so can be pretty easily padded.
Maybe not PG13, but bold for sure.

Good on ya for getting this one done. Jake and I checked it out one time , such an obvious line. We didn't have the guns(or the huevos) to pull it off. Good to see that it got climbed.
