Climbs the steep arete between a 10- and glass slipper. Start off a ledge and follow bolt line up using both sides of arete for hands. New route and is still loose.

Hey Walt, glad to see the new routes going in and I love aretes. Unfortunately this route is really contrived. You have to make yourself stay on the steep side. The holds lead you around to the lower angle face to the right but the bolts go up the steep side. The last two moves are the exception to this. The best route of the new ones is a 5.10 at Captain Hooks Grotto and climbs left of the arete. That is a two star route. If you could send me a list of the new stuff you have done in the same format as the new E Tower guide, Route Name, Grade, Sport, the names of those that did the FA including belayers that would be great. I will make sure they get into the next guide. Thanks Eric C. Rhicard Mar 2, 2006

Hey Eric, this is actually Mike. I don't believe I've ever climbed with you, but I've climbed with Guy before. I'll mention to Walt to send you the info. The name of the 5.10 is "Lunch with a Crocodile" 10d??. Mike Mar 3, 2006
