Getting established on the arete.


Power up the smooth technical arete and then finish with easier moves on lumpy rock to anchors. Short but demanding.

As with most short routes, they tend to pack a punch for the grade. However, this thing felt like v5/6 off the deck! Really cool sequence to get established on the arete, followed by some serious crimping to a slab finish.
