DescriptionAn exciting climb which culminates in slapping the not quite knife edge of the south-east arete. Bolted in standard JT style, it is never quite dangerous, but often thought provoking. The rock toward the center of the face is not the best, but this climb stays mostly true to the arete on solid holds.
The Original Route is a stand out climb with an amazing summit view. It would have a constant queue in a more accessed area of the park, but here it is an enjoyable obscurity for those who venture out to find it.
