If you are looking for a 5.11 arÍte, then this is your rig. Expect thoughtful climbing the whole way up. Originally done as a 4 bolt mixed route, it no doubt would have been too spicy for most suitors and was fortunately retro-bolted by the first ascensionist.
One of the best arÍtes in the gorge.
The arete left of "Giveaway."
8 bolts + anchors.

Super arete and a good intro to the Gorge...

I loved this route. Big moves at the start and tricky body english thereafter.
