This is a really fun arÍte! Start sitting with a good right hand undercling, a bad left hand slimper, and with a decent left heel on a little edge. Go left hand first, either to a crimp up and left or an undercling/sidepull straight out, then compress your way up the double arÍte to the top. Depending on which first move you chose, you will be forced into one of two distinct sequences, both of which are solid V10. This is an area classic with fun and interesting moves.
This is on the uphill side of a large boulder at ground level on the southwest side of The Nautilus, below the climbs the Three Sisters. The first or second trail into the boulders if coming from the main parking lot should take you right there. You can also find it by walking through the tunnel right behind The Tempest, it will be on the left after the tunnel. It is a distinct, steep, clean cut, curving arÍte, and it has a slab/rock combo that keeps the ground close (but not dabby) the whole time.
A pad or two.
