Description

Hump almost to the North end of Ridge 2, and you will find a sweet, little arete. I can't believe that it took three years to check this out after listening to Dave rave about this line.

The climbing begins directly below the arete in a small roof/corner. Surmount this cruxy problem to gain a stance on the arete. Work the arete on nice, clean edges and a series of sweet moves that are probably never harder than 5.9.

Too bad this line is sooo short!! Arete Funicello kicks up good stone, fun climbing, and a gorgeous arete.

Protection

Half a dozen draws and a rope. Walk off left, but belay the second on the right over the top.

If necessary, you can carefully throw your rope around the top of this climb and rappel off. Jun 1, 2012
