A powerful start leads to a desperate throw after the second bolt. After the crux, enjoy easier, but still thought-provoking climbing to the ledge shared with Yellow Pages.
At this point, it is recommended to continue up Double Exposure. This link-up is creates an amazing 100 foot pitch of exposed arete climbing- not to be missed!
A link-up of Martyr's Crown, Double Exposure, and The Black Arete makes for one of the better arete climbs around. From bottom to top, the climbing slowly gets easier and more run-out the higher you climb.
You must be a really good climber, I mean with 5.12 being moderate and all?

Haha Ya, I was just giving Skyeler shit. I cried and cheated my way up it. The real ascent will come when the weather clears along with a couple other routes up there. You should give it a go Matt if you feel you're up to it. It's pretty rad, I'll give the FA a little bit of credit (but not so much that his ego would become over-inflated).
