Climb the lower face located to the right side of the arete to a ledge. From the ledge, work up both sides of the arete past horizontals, getting gear where you can until a nice rest on a big ledge, below a roof/bulge, before finishing up the last few feet via one of two ways: step right and up a crack or straight up over the bulge.


On the left side of the "Pigs Buttress"...you can't miss the arete.


Standard rack, some thin stuff, runners. Gear and Trees at the top can be used for anchors. Rap from the Pigs ring anchors.

There are anchors above the arete. No need to use the Pig anchors.
