Chalk is unsightly to non-climbers. Please avoid chalking up boulder problems that are visible from the Chicago Lakes Trail, & in general, keep chalk use to a minimum. Brush all tick marks off after every session. Use containers that prevent chalk spills & if you do spill, clean it up.
Stashing crash pads is forbidden by the USFS. Pads will be confiscated.
Noise: this is a Wilderness area that is enjoyed by many, mostly non-climbers. The last thing passing hikers want to hear are f-bombs, iPod speakers, grunting, etc. In fact, most other CLIMBERS don't want to hear any of these things either. The easiest way for us to lose access is to elicit complaints from other user groups.
Dogs must be leashed at all times, they scare wildlife. Obviously, clean up after your dog.
Remember we are guests in this area. Be respectful of other users & the USFS Rangers that manage this area.
Begin sitting down just right of the arete, with the RH on a good hold about 2 off the ground, and the left hand pinching the arete. Backstep the right foot near the arete, then pop up to a good crimp with the right hand. Work right along a pair of horizontal seams to a great incut spike below the black face. Head more or less straight up the face, through the crux, to an easy top out.
The stand start is just as good and not significantly easier.
