Most climbers start this classic arete route by veering in from the right onto the arete rather than the original direct start. Continuous technical arete moves highlight the climb. For myself, I've found the moves past the final bolt easiest on the left (the original crux), while the majority of climbers apparently find it easier to stay on the right side.


The arete just left of Karate Crack, in front of the stair-steps.


4 Bolts and an optional 1.5 Friend above the last bolt (the climbing eases off soon after the last bolt, but if you're totally flamed, you could potentially fall off in the last 15+ feet to the anchors).

This route is a blast, especially because when you get sick of falling out of the crux you can walk 10ft. to your left and fall out of the crux on Watt's Totts. ;)

Definitely sustained the whole way. I found the moves above the last bolt to be easier on the ft side of the arete as well.

I think it's easier to go left too, but everyone I was climbing with today went right.

I've never tried going left. On the right I do remember one pretty big deadpoint to a GREAT hold which was pretty committing cause you're a ways above your bolt.

.75 (green) camalot for the optional piece. The hard climbing is over by this point though.
