Climb up into the small roof and pull over the larger roof from left to right. Continue easier climbing to the top. Pull the small roof at the top for some added fun.


Start on a ledge about 5' up, 20' left of White Arete, left of the roof.


Good gear all the way. Good route for beginning leaders.

Traversing under the roof and pulling out is a ton of fun, with great protection. Good lead for a beginner looking to get past walking up a ladder.
