Stay to the left of lower arête, and aim for the twin finger cracks at the overhang. Pulling the overhang is the obvious crux; both cracks that continue to the upper slab will take gear to protect this move. You can pull the overhang between the cracks (using one finger crack and one hand crack), or you can stay left of both cracks for better feet and use the outside corner and slopey crimps for hand placements.


It is on the left side of Ship's Prow area. Look for the overhang with the distinguishable twin finger cracks. This is hard to miss.


Stoppers are ideal underneath the overhang. Plug a 1 - 1.5" cam in the roof, and use a mix of stoppers & cams (up to 2") on the upper slabby section. There are good gear options.
