BETA PHOTO: the Nose -- overview of routes: A. Open Jaw C. Ri...

Description 

Delicate sequence on small holds, then easier fun arete climbing.

Start on the right side of the arete, then pretty much straight up -- staying "tight" to the arete, not using larger holds out in the middle of the ridge face (which might be part of the next route to the left).
. (Variation easier: Use a larger sloping hold in the middle of the ridge face about eight feet up for the left foot).

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).

Location 

The arete which forms the right edge of the four-foot-wide ridge coming down south from the top of the Nose.
