Big Arete


Looming behind the other boulders is this tall, beautiful arete. Climb it by the right side. Start on the obvious large jug and pull past a gaston in the face into slippery laybacks on the arete and a committing move to the lip. Scoot right a bit and haul yourself over the top. Classic!


Around the other side of the boulders from the other problems, look for the large arete.


A couple pads and a spot.

Agreed. Felt like a true V5 to me. Superb Arete.
