This climbs the right arete on the left-most slab. This slab also has Rehabilitation on it. This is a fun friction climb that stays either on the arete or just left of it.


This climb lacks protection and since it shares the top of the flake with Rehabilitation, toproping is a safe option.

East slab start 5.5-5.6 and then a wonderful layback arete sequence with thin feet starts hard with an optional break a few moves up. Very Fun! Felt easier than leading rehabilitation.
