Ree climbing the Right Arete

Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. MORE INFO >>>


After a bouldery start you will find a few nice finger pockets and some nice ledges. Avoiding the moss, move past a couple of bulges staying to the right towards to arete. The crux is about 3/4 the way up as you move past a football size boulder that is a major key hold.


This is the far right climb on The Hostess. Start near the base of a large tree staying to the right all the way up.


Top rope only, use webbing and sling some stuff at the top. Some directionals may be required to safely stick to the arete. Flipping your rope around a boulder near the top may help protect the start.
