Begin on the right side of the arete, moving up over easy rock to the first bolt, from there three bolts and fun moves on either side of the arete bring you to a stance and the anchors.


The prominent arete just to the right (west) of the Gold Mind crack(s).


Four bolts to a two bolt anchor

I know Chris Falkenstein says that Urmas did the FA of Ellery Arete (5.11a), but I think he did the FA of the Spillway Arete (10d). So who in the heck really did the FA of Ellery Arete? It's got 4 new 3/8ths bolts that I don't remember back in 1990.
