Access Issue: Stage 2 Fire Restrictions in Effect on Coconino and Kaibab National Forests Details

Description

This one doesn't get led much, and for good reason. The first half of the climb is fun and well protected and takes you to a big ledge. From the ledge you can get down on your stomach and place some gear, or go out right and put gear in the corner. Either way, you're in for a nasty fall if you come off at the crux. The arete is insecure and balancy. Very cool. Just after the crux you can reach right and get gear in the corner. Whew!

Variation: If you want to be closer to your pro you could just go up the corner off the ledge, but then that wouldn't be Rush'n' ARETE now would it?

Location

Start at the first major corner left of Standard Forks at a straight in flare.

Protection

Don't remember, but probably 2 each to #2 Camalot.
