|After clipping the first bolt by climbing the chimney to the right, I downclimbed and tried leading the arete from the base of the arete and thought it was much harder than 5.10a. I found myself instinctively sticking a foot out on the rock wall to the left and, when I got to the first bolt, stepping onto a ledge on the rock wall on the right to rest. Now that I have reread the description, I agree it is 5.10a after reaching the first bolt by climbing the chimney to the right of it. My partner top-roped the arete from the base without using the rocks on either side, and thought it was hard 5.10 or 5.11.|

Yeah, the lower section is hard 10 for sure. ended up stemming it.
It could use a little more cleaning on the right side of the arete.
Instead of 4th classing the bottom, I climbed the blocky rocks that provided some fun boulder moves (vo), then traversed above and next to the small conifer to the chimney/arete.
perfect rating for the far side though, back to sandbags, right outdooreric? :)

|Fun route after the first bolt... but getting there requires either sliding alongside an extremely sharp and spikey tree (ugh) or some fairly committing moves right and above the tree. Way more fun on toprope (easier to avoid the tree)... And careful to dodge the tree on your way down!|

|The sharp tree had a haircut recently. Should be good for a while.|
