The Arete is a second pitch variation to Layback Route. Climb the first pitch of Layback Route to the pin anchor. Continue up the second and move left under the roof. Take the open book corner with a hand crack to a stance ledge. Move right onto the super exposed arÍte plugging gear in horizontals. Pull the lip to a big ledge with a bolt anchor.
