DescriptionSummary: Climb the arete.
Details / beta: Starts from one head high crimp and a higher crimp. Move into a hard pinch on pockets and bad undercling. Move up to a right crimp and blunt arete pinch. From here, there are 2 variations to finish. The right variation seems just as hard as the left, just completely different. The left finish has an awkward bump from a really good undercling and decent feet. The right finish has a heinous lockoff from a sharp crimp and bad feet.
Good: Both finish variations can accommodate tall or short climbers.
Bad: Both finishes are tough.
