The Right Side Arete on the North Face of the North Roc
|478 page views|
This route starts on the bottom of the Northernmost rock, just around the corner from The Cleavage (5.4), which chimneys the obvious crack on the west side of this rock.
This is quite downhill from many other routes on the rock, which is why this route is so much longer (at 40') than the next climb to the left, which is about 25 feet.
Climb the face using the arete when necessary to the top anchors.
There's an altnernate start that begins on the overhanging arete, which goes at about a 5.10b.
Setting up a toprope on the 3 bolt top anchor requires a long sling (10'), and you must climb the Cote Memorial Wall (5.3) route (or another) to reach the bolts.
