Ascend the center of the smooth face to the ledge at half height, then step left and up to the top. The beta says not to use the arete, there are some excellent holds just out of sight around the corner. But it is totally doable going straight up the face.


Begin a few feet right of Orvie Direct at the center of the smooth face.


TR. Double bolts & chains at the top.
Trad, but poor protection.

I didn't use the arĂȘte at all and it was definitely an 11.
