Description 

Classic left to right arete climbing on a big, cool looking block!

Swivel around the arete on a good right foot knob and clip the 1st bolt. Totally rad moves up to a point near level with a half driven, flexy KB pin in a horizontal seam (upper bolt is for Stubble Face). Traverse right and past the pin (may feel like the crux) to the right arete. Go up the right side past 2 more bolts and a traversing seam (possible pro). After a couple moves right go straight up and back left to a bolt anchor (needs long chains to go over the edge) on top of the block.

2 raps to get down with one rope.

Protection 

QD's, slings, smallest cams or small nuts optional
