A great highball arete that requires a bit of technique and balance. Sit or hang start at the base of the arete on the right and follow it up and left with heel hooks, smears, and arete pinches. When it finally goes vertical, look for the jug out left and topout. Be careful not to fall off into the tree.
Above Hairway and Counterclockwise, this arete is hard to miss. Approach the upper tier from the left of Instant Hippie. Walk off the back of the boulder and circle around to the left.
