This worthwhile route is a good option on a hot afternoon or chilly morning. Certainly one of the best routes on the left side, this route can be a bit dirty at times, despite good-quality rock. Begin by scrambling up to the belay stance. Its possible to climb a mini-pitch up to a good ledge with a belay bolt for minimal rope drag, but its perfectly do-able (and surely less of a hassle) to belay from the 2nd class ledges below. Snake up the vertical wall, occasionally reaching right around the arete.
