This is the obvious bolted arete that soars up above and to the right of the North Face routes on the Monolith. It involves intricate and sustained 5.11 sequences to a rest below a great crux boulder problem on the arete, involving creative heelhooking and some long spans. It might be easier for taller climbers. The runouts above the crux are very manageable. A bit soft for the grade, but very involved. A must do!

Burly, definitely bouldery and technical, but not all that pumpy and I question the 'soft' bit.

I second Collin, soft for the grade it's definitely not. Great, technical climb with a powerful crux.
