Description 

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!

Location 

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

Protection 

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