Roy showing how its done.


Start up the easy (5.6) wide chimney, takes a 6" piece or stick clip the first bolt.
Move right and make hard moves getting on to the arete proper. Dance up the arete with a few more tricky moves to anchor.

A perfect arete climb on bomber rock.


Starts up the chimney then arete on the north east face of Dinka Tower.


6" cam or stick clip first bolt.
Then all bolts.

A thin, airy, and exposed line that rewards the person hanging their butt out there with great photo opp.s! Impressive FA!
