It's good to see some more good lead pics at the Lake!

Finally some great shots of someone leading this 5.10 gem.
The Arete to the right is a super sporty 5.9+ lead or super fun TR as well.. Don't know name (not in guide?) but it is well worth climbing it...

Burt, we were looking at this arete hoping it was some 5.12 waiting for the first ascent. 5.9+ huh? Darn...

Kris, Devil's Lake 5.9+ could be equal to 5.12 anywhere else.

Aha, now the truth comes out. And I thought I was just fat...it's both. I can resume eating cheese.

Yup- that arete looks harder then it is. The gear is a bit scant getting up into it but there is a black Tricam in under cling thing just below crux and small TCU or wire to be had whilst actually moving through the crux. Go try this thing-- it is way fun...
