Description

Climbs the Arete to the left of Hospital Corner. First pitch follows the beautifull orange arete through thin delicate moves to a bulge, then up dikes to a preplexing finish. One 60m rope will get you close to the ground. Carefull or you'll drop someone on the lower off. The second pitch climbs even thinner and more balancy moves past a few bolts to the anchor.

Location

To the left of Hospital Corner

If you want to be sure to get down on one rap, use a 70m rope. Or, if you've got a 60, walk east on that ledge with the anchors 10 feet and rap off the Arctic Breeze anchors. Jul 3, 2007

We rapped from the first set of anchors, and our 70mm rope JUST made it to the ground. Nov 7, 2010

A bold line. The second pitch has a strong beginning sequence, and eases up significantly after getting through the second bolt. Both pitches are excellent climbs with a variety of fun, delicate moves. I thought that the second pitch was easier than the first, and the supplemental pro on the second pitch is unnecessary(it is well bolted). Do both pitches for the full experience! Oct 7, 2014

2nd bolt is a bit loose, and it protects the crux. Maybe bring a wrench if you're heading up on this. Jul 18, 2016
