BETA PHOTO: The Arete

Areas on State Game Lands may face full hunting season closure starting in 2015 - please read and respond MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb the overhanging arete through the bulges and then balance your way up the slab to the top. Although it's considered a classic, it tends to be less popular with beginners since setting the top rope requires a small, easy free solo to reach the top of the block.

Location 

Located on the right side of the north face of the Island Block, directly across from Beginners' Face.

Protection 

Anchor bolts and trees.
