BETA PHOTO: Handrail Traverse and Rob's Arete. Also known as t...

Description 

Low feet spanning the arete off of a shallow left crimp and a decent right crimp. Left foot up on the arete, slap up with the left hand, or, if you're taller gun for the rail. Once you hit the rail, it's over. Watch the top-out though - it's a little loose and needs cleaning. Sit-start variation goes much harder, maybe V5.

Location 

Prominent arete on the right side of Chossman Traverse Boulder

This is not a new route either. It is Rob's Arete. FA by Rob Hilko.

I did this one dangling off the arete to the left. Maybe it was cheating? Whatever, it was fun.
