Start sitting at the bottom of the arete on some sharp quartz holds. Move leftwards along the arete via sharp quartz slopers, crystals, edges and jugs to a somewhat tricky top out. This climb is kind of like a slightly harder, much sharper version of 'General Lee'.

If you can tolerate the pain, this climb is actually fairly enjoyable.


If you're looking at the 'Pocket Problem', turn 180 degrees and you will see a small boulder approx 75 feet away. This problem is located on that boulder, starting on the right arete of the short overhanging face.
