Description Suggest change

On Oct. 18, David Light led me up this arete, which lies between Malign and Nightcap.

Climb directly up the short wall to the blunt arete. Stay on, or close, to the arete for its entirety. Stay on the right side of the hollow, perched pillar. Above it, avoid the big indistinct, perched block, with a hard move barely to its right. A short, left-leaning crack above the top of the arete is the other crux. At the very top, place directionals, and protect the traverse right to the bolted anchor atop Nightcap. This is not a bad climb, but the big block is looser than it looks.

Location Suggest change

This is the blunt, cracked arete between Malign and Nightcap. It is the obvious crack system left of Nightcap.
