If arete moves are what you want, this is it. If you're not sure arete moves are your thing, try this one.

Start on the right side of the arete / outside corner which forms the left side of the obvious chimney / gully. Go up it all the way to the top (using the crack of "Pure Shadow" just to its left is OK, but stay definitely all on the right side of that crack).

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


Climb the chimney / gully (with low roof in its right wall) at the right side of the right section of Monkey Bar sector.

Protection for trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
