starting up the beautiful arete

Description 

Start left of Whipping Post on the dusty ledge. *beware the poison ivy* Work up the blocky, moist, and dirty goodness through the second bolt to gain a nice jug and contemplate how to clip the third bolt. Leaving the jug and standing up into a couple pinches begins the crux.(aim right) Sort out the long moves through the next bolt or two to a porpoise head jug rest. From here move left with liebacks and underclings to a fantastic sequence that puts you at the base of the arete. Enjoy the spectacular climbing up the arete as you cruise to the chains!

Protection 

8 or 9 bolts. Chain anchors.
