Description

While attaining proper sending weight, I couldn't help but notice some writing on the wall: FOR A GOOD TIME CLIMB SKYLER"S ARETE. While i normally don't take the advice of any lavatory, I went with my gut on this one.

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.

whew!

Good Times

Location

About 75 feet to the right of the Assassin Wall is a huge roof with a stunning arete beneath it. The sharp, crisp line is Skyler's Arete. This is also the first and most left route at the Memorial Wall

Protection

Seven quick draws for five bolts and an anchor.

Tried this last year. Whipped before third clip. Pulled my girl up to 1st bolt and came inches from decking. My buddy lead it today. He got up to where I whipped last year, looked down and noticed draw on second bolt wasn't clipped to bolt??!!!???!! He calmly clipped the third bolt and was again protected. Phew! Another buddy, another time almost decked here, too. Fun climb though! Aug 8, 2010
