Good steep climbing, but committing. Starts about 20' right of the Arete on a grass ledge above a rock step. Follow a deep slanting line of flakes up to the right (first pro at 15'). A final pull on smaller holds leads to a resting place. Traverse left to a small cave/slot and climb steeply to a ledge. Step left around the corner onto a clean slab which is followed to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
