Middle of Andy's Arete.


A rather fun traverse-y, smear-y problem with an excellent landing area. Pay attention to your feet :)


When approaching The Pasture, this is the first massive boulder you find and the first traverse line that catches your eye.

The start is at the beginning of the long lip and the finish is at the end of it.

V5 seems a bit off, dimes for feet that are easier to recognize if you're a slab efficianato...don't avoid it due to the rating.

The most recent guide book labels it a V4, but I would agree with V5 more. "Dimes" is a bit generous for the feet, especially if you're trying to go fully up the arete and not topping out early.
