Starts hard on a sharp arete and then eases off with good pro.


Start in the gully behind B-Minor Mass on a sharp arete right of a tree choked dihedral.


Mixed bag of gear.

The gear is much better than it looks from below ... every body length along the sharp arete. Oct 5, 2011
Did this two weeks ago and was a bit confused on which crack A Cheval starts up. I climb the this lower slab with minimal gear, then had the option of taking the dihedral(right crack) or the left crack on or near the face. I took the left crack and the climb ending up being a bit contrived all the way to the top. I think I was off route...Beta on where to start on which crack? Sep 6, 2012

Like Nick says, keep one hand on the arete. It's a little - but not too - contrived. Climbs better than it looks, except for the very last move. Sep 7, 2012

Led this today and stayed right on the arete and it climbs very well that way with somewhat ample protection in horizontals. I climbed all the way to the highest summit and it's fun with a great view down onto the tree tops. Awesome temps today with great cool breezes swirling around. Sep 8, 2012
