Face left of Wrights Arete.
Maybe this is Wrights Arete, but there is a direct line that avoids using the arete and staying on the face. A good fun highball none the less.

Lax group climbed this in 2006ish. Originally with a dyno right at the end that sent you flying into the tree if you missed.....fortunately our technique has improved since then. I too thought this might be wrights arete....eitherway it is a cool committing route.

I have done the arete, but had never seen anyone on the face straight up like the photos show. I had assumed it was unsent until Dobbe got on it last weekend but sounds like you guys did the same variation previously... Cool line.

This was the first problem I completed at the Dodge. Great climb. Very committing at the top.

Great problem. Even after studying other people's beta from the pictures, I found myself sticking the horizontal crimp with my left hand rather than my right. To me the other way felt harder but it was a tad hot that day so the vertical slot didn't feel the greatest.
