Description

Most climbers start this classic arete route by veering in from the right onto the arete rather than the original direct start. Continuous technical arete moves highlight the climb. For myself, I've found the moves past the final bolt easiest on the left (the original crux), while the majority of climbers apparently find it easier to stay on the right side.

Location

The arete just left of Karate Crack, in front of the stair-steps.

Protection

4 Bolts and an optional 1.5 Friend above the last bolt (the climbing eases off soon after the last bolt, but if you're totally flamed, you could potentially fall off in the last 15+ feet to the anchors).
