BETA PHOTO: Headbanger's arete from the bottom

Description 

This is a classic sharp arete, with fairly sustained climbing up nicely textured rocks. All bolts are well-spaced.

Location 

Walk along the base of the cliff until you find the sharp arete that forms the outside edge of a large right-facing corner.

Protection 

Standard rack of sport draws.

FA was Murray Ball. The arete is polished and the bolts are spaced far enough to keep your attention.
