This route is the right arete counterpart to South Arete. Start by doing a short crack just left of the right edge of the pinnacle. Above the crack go over some small overlaps, passing two bolts on 11b climbing. The upper half of the arete is runout, although the climbing gets progressively easier.

Some might give this route an "R" rating while others would argue that the upper climbing is easy enough relative to the overall grade that it doesn't need one. Be forewarned, it is runout on easier ground.


The right arete of the Le Dent Pinnacle proper.


Bolts, and maybe a little gear for the opening crack. Rapp from a horn.
