Description 

Climb "a devilishly thin arete that should be on any slab climber's agenda" says the NC select guide book. Yes, very thin and the climbing starts right from the ground. You will be smearing, crimping, slapping, humping, balancing and mantling your way past a couple of bolts to get to a rest. More slabbing and thin climbing past a couple more to a slung boulder for anchor. Back it up if TR-ing it. You may also want to stick clip the first bolt. And be careful between the second bolt and the rest...I blew it there and took a good fall.


Location 

Left side of the Cereal Buttress. Look for the sharp, thin arete up on a ledge.


Protection 

4 bolts, slung boulder for anchor.
