Description

This is the intimidating arete on the left side of The Dali.

Sit start and begin slaping left hand up the arete, bumping your right as you go. You'll reach a slopey jug at about head height, then more of the same slapping and heel hooking.

Most people I've seen top out on the left side of the arete, but it can be done on the right as well.

Protection

Lots of pads.

Last season a hold broke at the beginning. There is an obvious scar that remains, with chalk around where the hold used to be. I believe this problem is significantly harder now, but I don't know. Would appreciate feedback on the grade from recent senders. Aug 2, 2009

That wasn't the first hold to break on this one. There was a crimp up high on the left side of the arete that broke a few years ago too. The only things keeping this one from being 4 stars is the exfoliation and friability of the some of the small edges near the top. If the breaking/friability of holds is over, this one might be worthy of 4 stars. Aug 9, 2009
