This is a fun and well-protected route up an arete. Tricky footwork is most of the issue here...

Eases up about 2/3 the way up. Nice Line!


Left of the obvious Happy Wheel crack there are a couple of difficult face routes. On the left edge of this wall is the fairly obvious arete climb.

This climb would be, in my opinion, the Elmo's Fish of the Happy Wheel Walll.
