Interesting question. I spent a decent amount of time on this climb a couple years ago. From what I remember I would say it's about 5.9+ up to the decent rest right before the crux sequence. Once you get through the crux to the next good hand it's pretty smooth sailing at 9ish as well so I would say it depends where you come back on the face. The crux is pretty short (one or two moves on the arete likely bypasses the two or three really bad holds) so depending on how hard that move to the arete and back is I'd say it would be around 9+/10a. I'll have to give it a shot next time I'm in the area. Nov 29, 2015

Does anyone know what this line goes at if you use the arete for a single move (maybe two) to bypass the crux face move? Maybe low/mid 5.10? Sep 29, 2015
