A fine arete climb with a hard press on a small slightly grainy boulder.Start low on the right arete, which is facing uphill, and climb it using a small xenolith feature along with the arete. After the hard press move finish on the left side of the arete and top out. Could get better with more action and traffic!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
