BETA PHOTO: Vision follows the left arete, Go Dog, Go! follows...
A great arete route despite bad rock to start. Climb 20 feet of poor rock, clip the first bolt and move out onto the face. Tackle some easy face climbing and move out onto the arete. Slap, pinch, and palm your way through the first crux (around bolt 4), move onto the left face and milk a great rest in large incut pockets. Begin the second crux directly above. It involves some tricky pocket sequences. Move back onto the face and run to the anchors. The final 30 ft is fairly easy, however a good pump could send you packing.
Furthest route left in the dehidrals. Take the Prophet wall path to it.
Eight bolts, two bolt anchor`

This route is awesome. If you like 5.12 arete climbing, you absolutely have to do this route. Many cool sequences split by great rests.

Harder than Go dog go I thought...the crux uses a tiny crimp that I can barely get 3 fingers on.

Found a great way to do the crux for me on top rope only to realize that the rope is RIGHT in front of the foot I used when on lead. All the hard moves seen to be when you're moving from the right face to the left. Crux is very well protected but everywhere else is spaced enough to keep you on your toes.
