Arete Juliete


Above and around the corner from Goldfinger is a rounded and striking arete. This blank and lightly featured face is Arete Juliete. Particular protection and intimidating moves make this line a bold undertaking. This climb sees low amounts of traffic yielding flaky and brittle terrain.

Start off-balance with blank feet and blunt hands. A dynamic move gains a long shallow edge. Rock onto this small ledge, place a piece then ride the arete up and left past a bolt. Stay low and on the face avoiding the temptation to rock over too soon. Squeeze the blunt arete and slab up and left across the face. Clip another bolt and keep trust in what follows! A few sketchy moves unveil a good surprise, mantle up and over at the lines apex.


Above and Around from Goldfinger is a large and rounding arete. Start on it's left side in front of a few broken boulders.


Two draws, small/med. stoppers, and gear from .5-#2 Black Diamond. Build an anchor on top using the hand sized pieces. Walk-off or scramble down to Goldfinger's anchors.
