I climbed this arete, but it already had tons of chalk on it (FAist?). It was fun,and has a fun bump with the right hand before the top. There is a big rock at the base of the opposing wall. Make sure your pad covers it, as I almost had a nasty encounter with it. Going up the arete I generally kept my body weight on the right foot and side of the arete.


It is on the north side of the big split in the main boulder.


A pad and a spotter would help you keep from getting to close to the opposing wall.
