Climb the right arete on the first buttress west of Treasure of the Sierra Madre. A serious lead on easier terrain and a very nice line.


Walk off north east then down gully near Pleasure Principal. Faces southwest.


Two bolts protect the arete, the first about 35 feet up and the second about 30 feet above that. Harder climbing right above each bolt then easing. Smaller aliens and sling for horn tie-off for some gear way above the second bolt. Gear anchor medium cams.

Not an "X" climb. The cruxes are protected by the bolts. You can also bring some thin cams and a set of nuts if you want some supplementary gear. Fun climbing on good rock. Feb 10, 2010
I had more fun on this one than the "classic" Treasures of the Sierra Madre next door. Impeccable rock quality on a rather long line. Don't expect much for supplemental gear - a piece or two can be had in the initial crack, then traverse out to the arĂȘte and clip the two bolts. A tiny nut/cam can be placed high above the second bolt. Probably not X, but definitely R. Be solid at the grade before attempting this one. Feb 4, 2013

Correction: Todd must have been confused.

"Remain in Light".... We first called it "The White Arete" but "Remain in Light" was much Better.
