Climb a shallow easy crack (1 bolt) to a shelf. Clip another bolt and move directly onto the arete. A series of powerful and technical moves to the next bolt comprise the crux of this route. A few stances help control the pump, topped with a tricky ending. Quite short, but with almost zero approach and easy off anchors the Son Volt Arete has alot to offer.
The Foundry is comprised of a number of small formations described in Joshua Tree West. The Son Volt Arete is the line just right of Little Lieback on the Foundry East Face. Start down and right of the large boulder that sits at the base.
