The approach to the Abram Arete and lower half of ...


I think the biggest and best of the south facing Ciavazes routes is the Abram Arête. It certainly follows the most prominent feature on the wall. Short approach, moderately good rock and quick descent. In the sun!


Can't miss it. East side of the Ciavazes wall. The steep and exposed ridge or arête. Descend by walking west along the Chamois Terrace trail and down climb (could rap some short spots) down and back to the road.


A few nuts, slings, etc. Mostly fixed 'crap'.

Like he said the protection was crap but what are you gonna do. The runouts were long but on generally good rock, just stay on the grey rock.

We brought cams and used them as often as we could. Top pitches were not easy to discern but we wandered around looking for pitons and it worked.
