The Entrance Arete is a cool little problem that climbs a sharp, hanging arete that faces inside the cave as you enter the cave from the upstream (entrance to Governor Stable) corridor. Stand start with hands in a horizontal crack, move though a cool slot, and perhaps grasp a textured pinch on the arete to make a big move to the flat lip. Mantel here or use the flat shelf above and back to get on top. I believe the guide has this as V3, but I think it is easier. This problem is one of the best of it's grade at the Stable, but is mostly overlooked.


Upstream corridor entrance to the Cave.


One, or two pads if you are not solid at the grade.
