Description

This climb is the arete just right of the cave. Start on easy blocks shared with the crack climb to the right (Heron's Fissure.) Instead of staying in the crack, move left to the arete, make one steep move to a reach a giant hueco to the left. A single piece of pro is probably available right before the hard part of the climb starts as you start up the arete, then likely nothing else.

Ardeidae is a family of heron's and other birds, thus the name implies that the route is next to Heron's Fissures.

Location

This is the arete just right of the cave, and left of Heron's Fissure

Protection

Not very much; this climb is probably best to toprope.
