Description Suggest change

*CC Arete and Empire Arete are different lines. Read the route description.*

Starting on the good arete on the left, make a right hand move into the seam, then move your left hand to the crystal cluster, and huck to jug. Establish, and be careful not to dab on the boulder. The stand is probably V5ish.

There's also a sit directly below the normal on the arete either matching the rail or with your right hand on the rail and your left hand on a low arete pinch. Climb into the stand. This probably adds another V point, probably V6ish, which now has its own entry here: CC Arete Sit.

Using either start, this has cool moves, requires a committing huck, and is an all around gem.

Location Suggest change

It is just behind the Central Sulcus Boulder.
