Currant Arete has fun climbing on great rock up the left arête of the aptly named Left Side Wall. The route is thin in a couple spots but is well-protected with 6 bolts. Stay on or just climber's right of the arête through a mix of face climbing and laybacking. The crux is at 40' up, pulling up to and through a small bulge.


This ascends the left arête on the Left Side Wall.


6 quickdraws.

Great sequences that made me think. Not to be missed. Aug 7, 2017

Great pitch, tainted only by the ease of climbing on to the left and right 5.9 routes. Aug 30, 2015
