Climb the Left Arete route to the horizontal below the crux face at the top. Move left around the corner and pull up past a small flake and top out to the right of the Hole in the Roof anchors.


This is an easier finish to Left Arete. Rappel from trees or walk off.


Normal rack w/#2 or 3 cam for the top.

This is a great variation finish. A very pleasant traverse around the corner using a large horizontal jam crack. Nice vision Jay.
