Jeff on the Fishnet Arete.

Description 

This arete is located on the back-side of the Fishnet Boulders as you approach from the West (i.e. walking from the Alcove).

The problem begins on the right-leaning and overhanging arete using directional pulls and slopey holds.

Work your way up the arete until you find yourself groveling at the bare top-out, which is certainly the crux.

Location 

This problem is located around the East side of the Pinnacle Boulder cluster. It won't be visible until you actually walk around the back side.

Protection 

A pad is important due to a rocky ramp beneath the landing which could do some damage to your ankle or back.

Spotters are also recommended.
