About to reach for the crux...at least my crux

Description 

Climb the obvious arete on the right side of the cliff.

An awkward section is encountered 3/4 of the way up the arete. As the top is approached you need to move to the right side of the arete, before moving back to the left before the anchors.

Location 

Rightmost bolted line.

Protection 

7 bolts, Rappel Bolt and Chain Anchor

Fun climbing up edges and flakes along the arete leads to a technical section past the last two bolts before finishing in a flake/crack to a monster jug. Fun!
