Start at the wide crack to the right of the arete. Climb up passing a low bolt and gain a stance on a large ledge with many loose flakes. Make a reachy move to pull the first overhang to gain a stance under the second overhang. From here, reach high and left to gain a finger lock and layback on the arete(crux). Rock over to the slab on the left side of the arete. Clip a bolt and traverse around to the right side of the arete to gain a thin crack system. Follow the crack system past 2 bolts to the end and traverse back left to gain the shuts under the roof. Really nice climbing!


The arete on the right side of Idol Point. About 30 feet to the right of the start for The Spectre.


8 bolts, shuts.

I thought this thing was pretty stiff for the grade, but a lot of the climbing was also not too straight forward (at least for me). Fun but route finding seemed to be the majority of the battle for me. Also some potential for iffy falls, and belayer can't see through treeline during the summer. Jun 22, 2017
