Description

This is the obvious bolted arete that soars up above and to the right of the North Face routes on the Monolith. It involves intricate and sustained 5.11 sequences to a rest below a great crux boulder problem on the arete, involving creative heelhooking and some long spans. It might be easier for taller climbers. The runouts above the crux are very manageable. A bit soft for the grade, but very involved. A must do!

I second Collin, soft for the grade it's definitely not. Great, technical climb with a powerful crux. Sep 25, 2013

Burly, definitely bouldery and technical, but not all that pumpy and I question the 'soft' bit. Jan 30, 2011
