Description 

A stunning black arete that needs to be climbed. Crux begins at the third bolt climbing through the sheild. Decent ledge to rest on, then fire the rest of the tricky arete/face climbing to the anchors.

Location 

The obvious tall arete immediately left of 'Wild Things' on the north side.

Protection 

8 Bolts to cold shuts.
