setting up for the crux

Description 

This is slightly contrived, but very good! Climb the north Arete, starts vert with good holds, but about 20 ft up the angle eases off and the holds disappear. slap up the arete and smear your feet, and a few moves lead to solid feet and decent crimps. can also drift right around the blank spot, keeps it 5.9. Second cruxy section is the upper headwall, left if 5.10-, the right is 5.11+

Location 

north arete of 90ft slab

Protection 

Use the second set of anchors from the north, keeps you from swinging around the corner. Super long slings help.
