Arkansas > Horseshoe Canyo… > Roman Wall
Great arete climbing with a few thin moves.
The far left of Roman wall, obvious arete.

Ron looking for the next bolt. Don't worry, that bolt was stick clipped, he didn't just skip the first 2 :P
Kevin contemplates attempting the 2nd pitch above Commodus
Start on the left side of the arete and make your way up to the anchors just below the massive ledge.
The focus is real.
Tommy climbing past the anchors for Commodus and going for Maximus (12a)
Great route, nice weather.

The extension of this to the top is "Maximus" 5.12a.

I felt the crux of this route was getting off the ground. After that it was smooth sailing.

beautiful, sharp arete that is on you from the moment you leave the ground. climber's love to bitch about the grade being sandbagged

One of the most classic 10 arete climbs at the ranch.

Really high quality arête with beautiful perfect stone. A fifty-something like me can also get to the top, look up at Maximus (which is effectively the 2nd pitch) laugh loudly and head back to the ground...

great route! The 1st bolt, as well as both anchors can rotate. could use a tightening up (I didn't have my wrench!).

Neat arete with good rock and a great position. I had just lead horseshoes and handgrenades before this, and this felt more unstable to me so I had a bit of a harder time (It's just not my style). Still a fun, interesting climb!
