Coral Bells Arete 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Utah : Wasatch Range : ... : East Face
This climbs an arete on the east face. This arete is obvious from the fork. This is a great climb that protects well. The crux is definitely the 1st bolt. Clipped high it is a safe overhang to fall on. The smooth face above is tricky but not too hard. The flake gives you a nice natural place to protect. My first ascent, I zipped right past the flake, jonesing on the chains. Aretes always add a degree of mental difficulty to me and this was no exception. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
