Stay left of the Unnamed Arete by climbing the easy slab to the crux at the small roof. After the crux follow easy terrain to the top.


Just left of the Unnamed Arete 5.10.


No bolts, No anchors. Top of the arete's crack accepts C4 2# for a top rope.

It appears from Paul's comment on the Unnamed 5.10 arete photo that this has been lead (R Rated) and is called "Embraceable You" 5.10 was suggested as well.

Paul can you confirm?

Cool! I think your right. Perhaps we should rename the route, and remove myself as FA. I'm under the ideology of upload routes, and rename them later philosophy. :D

It's interesting that it was lead since it has very limited, if any, protection opportunities. I'm pretty sure that the crux of the route would be completely unprotected on lead and would probably result in a ground fall... Paul, did you protect it round the corner from the Unnamed 5.10 arete?

probably unprotected, hence the R rating.

Embraceable You was led by British Mike in the mid 90s, and is not the line shown in the photo. That route starts on the Right side of the arete, climbs some cracks, then steps to the left side of the arete mid way. It was led "Hed Point" style and is likely R rated without inspection.

He also referred to the route as "Toe'd in Hole"

the line in the photo was top roped long ago and likely was also led by British Mike. It likely shares a few moves at the top.
