Nuclear Decay climbs a face on the right side of an arete. Climbing in the crack in the dihedral to the right is even easier, but not nearly as fun. There are some cool pockets on this route, and offers decent placement opportunities. Just remember that once you sink a piece in a pocket, it is no longer very useful as a hold.

Be careful of loose rock on the top of the routes–there are a few that can do considerable damage if they're knocked off. My hand was actually broken by a football sized piece of loose rock. I recommend helmets within 10 feet of the base the climb. Luckily the hospital is only about 10 minutes away.
