Chris Barlow just past the crux.


Currant Arete has fun climbing on great rock up the left arête of the aptly named Left Side Wall. The route is thin in a couple spots but is well-protected with 6 bolts. Stay on or just climber's right of the arête through a mix of face climbing and laybacking. The crux is at 40' up, pulling up to and through a small bulge.


This ascends the left arête on the Left Side Wall.


6 quickdraws.

Great pitch, tainted only by the ease of climbing on to the left and right 5.9 routes.

Great sequences that made me think. Not to be missed.
