The best route at this quirky micro crag. The first line you get to when you hike in. It follows the prominent arete feature but involves mostly face climbing to the right of the arete.
Steep moves off the ground won't feel as hard if you hit it just right. There are however a few enticing sucker holds. At the half way point you hit a cruxy steep move to gain the crimpy but less difficult upper face.
The top is covered in lichen so i didn't bother topping out.
The left most bolted line at the crag.
4 bolts, no anchor. You could anchor to the trees above.

Cool arete... I wish more of the climb went up it. Decent moves (if you know them), but tough.
