Kevin L on Bolted Arete.
This is the obvious bolted arete and one of the most westerly routes on the NW Slabs. This is an obvious line and was surely climbed as a runout trad line before it was bolted.
Climb up the arete past a little juniper growing out a crack. Move right past the last bolt and climb the obvious corner/crack. A few enjoyable stemming moves leads to easy slab above a tree/sling anchor.
The first bolts you see as you approach the NW slabs via the climber's trail. Obvious arete.
4 bolts. A light set of stoppers.
