|Area 13 - Left Side
A bit of face climbing leads up to the arete. Follow the arete up past an intermediate anchor, a corner and finally up the exposed upper arete. Long and fun. Can be done in two pitches or rappel in two rappels if you don't have a 70m rope.

Hmmm... not sure what Tom's talking about, with the 2 rappels and 70m rope. Yes, the route is long, but one rope is sufficient. We've done "Wild Will's Arete on numerous occasions and a 60m rope, although a stretch, will do the job. Also, the route can be descended with one rope in one rappel.

Lots of variety on this one with pockets down low to a fun stemming corner and then the finale up an exposed but featured arete. A classic and a must do route for the area.
We had about 15' left after lowering with a 70 meter rope.

If you lower from the top anchor with a 60m, stay right and un-clip any draws that make the rope jog.

What a long, super-fun, stimulating and exposed route! A must-do!
