Wild Will's Arete 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Area 13 - Left Side
A bit of face climbing leads up to the arete. Follow the arete up past an intermediate anchor, a corner and finally up the exposed upper arete. Long and fun. Can be done in two pitches or rappel in two rappels if you don't have a 70m rope....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
