Description Suggest change

Arguably the best problem at the park with powerful, technical climbing and a flat landing.

Start with a right-hand side-pull on the right side of the arete at chest height and your left on a side-pull in some carbonate deposit hold. Step your left foot anywhere you can get a clean foot and match your right heel to your right hand and go. The problem ends at the very large side-pull in the shield hold.  

Low start on opposing side pull right below the traditional start.  Tends to be wet in the summer but dry in the off seasons.  Its a good start to a great problem and not adding to the grade but it does get you full points.

As you walk down the east path to the river at the bottom of the cliff, it is the first arete you come to. You can't miss it.
