This is an old top rope (maybe??). When I found it, there were top rope anchors above, after speaking with rufas, sharpes arete is a few feet to the right of this line ( taking the overhanging arete ) This climb takes the left side starting up a easy 5th class slab to an obvious horn, then head right to the arete before tackling the face, a hard crimp move leads to easy climbing above. Fun but not classic.

(Update: for a while, it did not have chains and was missing an bolt, those have both been remedied.)


This is 100 feet left of Nautilus.


3 bolts and newly added chains for the anchor bolts.

I believe this is Sharpe's Arete. I was up there about a year ago, and the middle bolt was missing. Feb 20, 2013

There is another route in this area that climbs two bolts up to the middle of a face, then it climb three bolts horizontally across the face, and then it climb an arete to the chains. It looks like a really proud line. Anyone know what it is?/ what the rating is? Mar 24, 2013

Andrew, it seems that you are referring to "Z is last...", at least your description matches that. It is listed on this website. Apr 16, 2013
Not sure why this is called Sharpe's Arete...it seems the climb clearly stays left of the arete. This route seems like a very hard onsight for the grade, but with toprope working out the beta, it goes much easier. The onsight seems harder than 12a, but the toprope is probably ok at 12a. Not quite a one move wonder...this has about 10 feet of 12a...the first 50 feet is really easy and the runout top is about 5.9 but really good. Also, the clips were reachy, and I'm 6 ft tall.
