|Fun route with minimal gear. Testy/heady to the first bolt if you take a direct line. Easier climbing above to a small cam high in the crack; lower the rock is suspect. More fun climbing to and above a couple more small pieces. The climbing to the second bolt is outstanding, fun, easy, and quite run out. Instead of finishing up the arete, we finished at the Resurrection Ramp anchor.|

Pretty sure this is named "Arete Ride" in the guidebook. 5.8
I didn't really like it. The rock down low has significant growth, and a crumbly weird "kitty litter" feel. Awkward high fist bolt that is too far right. I had a BAD BAD time trying to get up into the crack on the bulge. Got stuck way above my last piece, in a nasty little position. Awful, insecure slabby climbing with horrible gear. It was practically an epic for me. I fought through it and pulled the move, but it was sketchy and not fun or aesthetic at all.
I think the better line is Ressurection Ramp, unfortunately. Sorry Sean/Mike, I know you worked hard to develop this area! I just wanted to give my impression of for future climbers to read.
