  • Description 

    Possibly the best V2 at GS. Start sitting with right hand on big jug and left in good slot. Climb up the arete and top out left or right, either way it's super cool.


    Circuit area. Kinda hard to find. Get the guide book.

    This is called the Circarete in my old comp guidebooks. Either way you finish it right or left, or whatever the name is, this is an enjoyable little climb. Pulling around the left is a bit sharp on the palms. The variations are called Circarete Right and Circarete Left.
