Ben K. on the FA.


Bill apparently had been looking at this for years. Finally inspired by the recent bolting at East A., he motivated.

Slap and compression your way through crimps and slopers up this arete.

We're not too sure about the grade but decided to start the bidding at 12+. Who knows, it might be 12b or 13a. No matter the grade, it's hella fun!


This is the arete just left of Angle Dust.


5 draws.

Here is a video that Bill made of us sucking it up on B-Team Arete.

Nice work, guys. This thing looks darn cool and, judging from the video, heaps of fun to climb on . . . .

Great addition to the harder lines up at East A. I liked this route.
