Heading out to the Memorial Wall you'll notice a very sharp and striking arete with a deep, complimenting roof. This dump of rock is Skyler's Arete.
Start on the left side getting your paws on some good holds. Square up, throw for a pinch, and carry on past three bolts pulling some big horizontal edges for about ten feet until you reach a very thin crux. Wipe your brow and wrap your tips around the two best holds,then crank out a big move working yourself up to a "look mom, no hands" ledge. Shake out, crack a beer, scratch where appropriate, and eye up the next bolt. Carefully step out into the swirling abyss and fire out the final committing and exposed stretch. Finish on more comfortable ground running it out to chains for some relief.
