Use both pockets and the arete to climb the short clean face to an easy top out. Using a foot on the arete is key to success at the grade. Otherwise eliminate the arete all together and go from one pocket to the next for something quite a bit harder.


The left arete of the south face. The first problem you come to as you approach the boulder.
