Bring on the Nubiles

The Nubiles fin.
Bring on the Nubiles is an awesomely exposed arete climb. It is best approached via the first pitch of West Pole, but it does have it's own first pitch which is quite run out.
P1: For this pitch begin just left of the tree at the start of West Pole and head up just right of the arete to a belay stance.
P2: Get ready! Climb straight up on thin cracks to a stance on a pedestal. From here reach up to a good horizontal and wander up near the arete to the top. Gear is sporadic - take what you can get and savor the exposure!
Standard rack. Emphasis on finger-size cams.

I found this climb to be well worth it. We did the first pitch which was extremely fun climbing, though covered in lichens and very uneasy (lots of loose rock and bad placements). The second pitch was stellar as well - better quality rock but more run out. Overall would highly recommend. Give this route some love! It deserves it.
