Description Suggest change

An arete climb by the master of aretes. 

Start as for pitch 2 of Velvet Pedestal, but near the 2nd bolt, head up and left of the Velvet crack to a pod that becomes a short crack. At the end of the crack, do tricky underclinging to the arete, then start clipping bolts as you ascend the arete.

Location Suggest change

Approach as for Velvet Pedestal.
