Description 

One of the best arete climbs around, this thing knifes into the blue, just begging to be climbed.


Location 

Located up the chimney right of the Old School Executioner. You have to chimney up and scramble to the arete. Descend either via double rope rappel to the ledge, or a single 70m rope to the chimney where you started the climb.


Protection 

Hand sized cams protect the first 15 feet to bolts

This is one of the most aesthetic single pitch climbs that I have done in the stronghold. Fun movement on a beautiful feature.
