  • Description 

    Start a bit to the left from the crack system about 15 feet up. Climb up on horizontals and then traverse a bit right to gain the crack (crux). From here, follow the crack to the finish, taking advantage of the many face holds along the way.


    From the approach trail, walk around to the left side of the Pebble. In the center of the left face, you'll see an obvious crack system.


    Cams 1.5" or less, stoppers. Shuts.

    This was a great route and, aside from the length, better than Machete Arete. A little tricky getting into the crack at the start but once in the climbing is straightforward and enjoyable. Not too much harder than its arete neighbor.
