Dirty start, but good climbing above.


This starts to the right of the left arete route. There's a tree about 20ft up to sling. Locate huge tree at the top about 15ft right of where Left Arete tops out. This finishes at the smaller tree to the left of the big one. It's a plumb line below that.


Small gear that is pretty good, then it's runout at the top. Before climbing it, hang an 8ft sling off of the tree at the top to clip in to for the anchor.
