If only this climb were longer...A must do if you have your rack and you are at the Pebble. Start about 10 feet to the left of the arete. Climb the entire climb staying on the left side of the arete. Great moves, great gear, super fun!


From the approach trail, this is the left most arete. Just to the left of a sport line, Brown Star, 5.12a.


Cams smaller than 1.5", tri-cams would work nice too. Shuts.
