Description 

Interesting thoughtful start, but then it fades.

Start at the bottom of the arete, finish left of the Cap rock.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

The arete which divides between the overhanging wall (SW left side) and the slab face (SE right side of El Cap).
