Sit start on the arete behind and left of Mozarts Traverse and pull up onto the arete. Follow the arĂȘte up using some feet and right hands on the face. Reach up high over the top and grab a good hold. Mantle up directly and a bit left on sandy holds.

Don't know if anyone has climbed this before. Let me know if you have info on it. It's quite grainy and some of the holds are suspect. Could clean up well with some traffic. Good route for the v1-v2 climber to test his mental toughness on the mantle.


The arĂȘte is to your back left if you are standing at the start of Mozarts Traverse.


Two pads and a spotter makes it fairly safe.

On a historical note this whole boulder cantered over during the Northridge Quake, the arete used to be super steep - never knew of anyone climbing it though. Mar 20, 2011
