Crystal Arete.


Sit start with both hands in the large slot that runs along the bottom of the rock. Work the right hand to the arete, match the left above, and go up and left again to a crystal about 3-3.5 feet above. Finish up and slightly left on small and sloping holds, and onto the slab above. Move off left to an easy downclimb.


This is located about 150 yards Northeast of the Pirates Cove. Locate Coconuts (Basics of Plundering), then continue past a free standing boulder 100' NNE, proceed North past the large boulder for another 50-75', and you've arrived.

Have to wrestle after the crux. Pine tree provides some great sap on a key hold. The beauty of nature.

Yeah...this one is kinda rough. That's the beauty of Three Sisters. Still lots of stuff waiting for some love!
