Jeffrey on Photo-Op Arete, August 1, 2015

Description 

Just right of Ender. Climb the star-shaped incision, coming around the right side of the arete, and finish the climb up the face.

Location 

The prominent arete between Ender, which is about 5 yards upstream from the plaque, and Pride, the straight crack that reaches the top of the wall. Look for the star shaped incision at the bottom of the route for the start.

Protection 

Top rope.

Why is this AKA photo-op arete? Does anyone have pictures that illustrate the photogenic nature of the route?

This is from the top. Not the best pic, but shows the "photo op"ness of it.
