Upper half of arÍte

Description 

A striking overhanging arete that climbs as good as it looks. Most of the climb is pure arete climbing, with hands and feet milking unlikely holds on either side of the feature.

I had been eyeballing this line for years from across the canyon. I was finally drawn in, and all control was turned over to The Sampler.

Location 

Right side of crag, obvious arete

Protection 

8 bolts and lower biners

IMHO this is probably the best pure arÍte on the mountain and quite possibly one of the best anywhere. Continuously interesting moves on both sides of the arÍte.
