This climb has lots of thin moves and some friable rock, but it's well worth doing. Start by climbing up on the right side of the arete. Stay on the right face for a few thin moves and then head back left toward the arete. From here, use small footholds and crimps on the right side of the arete aiming for a small horizontal crack (crux). Once you reach the horizontal, look to the left side of the arete for positive crimps and climb the arete to the finish.


This route is the arete to the left of Wild Seed, 5.11a.

The hardware on this route is in really poor shape. Most of it is rusted, several of the hangers are loose, and the anchors are simply cringe-worthy; combined with the hollow, flaky holds, this makes for a seemingly unsafe route.
