One of my favorite routes at Harmel's even if it has bolts close to the ground. The bolts were at least placed on lead and hand drilled. Start at a short and shallow corner at the base of the arete.
Climb up to the 1st bolt above a stiff little mantle. Continue up to the bulging face and clip the second bolt. Surmount the bulge on hidden holds and climb up to the bolted anchors. Be wary of the flakes on the edge of the arete they are a wee bit crunchy and have diminished in size over the years from rough handling. The loss of these flakes would make this a much harder climb.
The arete between Baby Face and Air Conditioner corner.
2 bolts and small wires.
